Atlanta's 5th Venue

"Atlanta's 5th Venue" is an auditorium in Atlanta, Georgia. While it's name implies that it was the 5th one created, the name's origin is not known. The city government proposed the idea of a new auditorium for concerts and other affairs in 1954. These proposals resulted in a new but old fashioned venue in 1956.

The venue held many concerts and meetings (political and professional) throughout the following 6 decades. In 2010, concerns arose about the building's architecture. The public began to fear that the auditorium was aging and would soon become a public safety hazard. Those in authority in Atlanta did not take these assertions seriously.

In early 2019, during an orchestral concert, these concerns came to life when the roof collapsed onto the first several rows of seats before the stage. There was much debate over which precise flaw in the architecture lead to the collapse but most theories center around the huge glass chandelier hanging over those seats. 2 were killed and 39 were injured. The venue has not been demolished but abandoned for the time being as the city still debates what to do with it.
