The Georgia Dome was only 25 years old, but on Monday, it was demolished by the city of Atlanta.

The Atlanta Falcons have moved into the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, a stunning $1.5 billion stadium with a retractable roof. It is like nothing else ever seen in the NFL and looks from the outside like a gigantic metal origami structure.

Here are some of the features.

The Georgia Dome was taken down on Monday with a controlled implosion. It opened in 1992.

One side of the stadium is a ground-to-roof window.
