Return to Hartsfield Incinerator
Amphitheater has two
(1) as a gathering area for organized presentations, performances, and activities.
(2) as a quite seating area for individuals or small groups of people. The design proposals for the amphitheater area take advantage of a dramatic elevation change to create a strong sense of enclosure and offer striking views of the incinerator structure and the surrounding environment. The amphitheater nestles into the existing hillside and sitelines are directed toward the incinerator building, which serves as a backdrop for a stage. The curvilinear lines of the amphitheater contrast with the hard, linear lines of the incinerator structure and create a strong visual element.
The design for the amphitheater includes water features and a stage with a convex shaped wall. The amphitheater provides a place for outside performances and serves as an outdoor classroom. It can also function as a water feature in suitable seasons.
