STYLE AND SUBSTANCE - The stylized shape of the new home for Atlantis incorporates hues of orange and gold to represent both the heat and the bright colors of re-entry. Special gray colored tiling has been incoporated into the building's design to represent the space shuttle tiles that protected the orbiter from the heat of re-entry.
