Philips Arena is an indoor arena located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Completed in 1999, it’s home to the NBA team, the Atlanta Hawks, and the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream. With seats for over 18,000 spectators, it’s also one of the premiere venues in the country for concerts and special events. The building adjoins CNN Center, the headquarters for the news network. The building’s grand entrance features 55-foot high steel letters that spell “ATLANTA,” making for one of the most recognizable sights in the city.
I took this photo out of the sunroof in my friend’s sunroof while touring the city. I loved the geometry of the buildings and the modern look of the letters. For more fun travel photos, be sure check out Budget Travelers Sandbox.
