Design of the steel tensile strucure. The structure is composed of truss beams cantilevered on 27 m, anchored at the head of hollow concrete cubes.
The Corten steel used is painted as an answer to the need of low maintenance in a corrosive area (stadium is located near by the ocean). Structure elements are composed of folded metal sheets (6 to 12 mm thick).
Coating has two skins : a plain membrane on top and a perforated membrane underside. The roof must resist at 350kg/m2 wind pressure; it's stabilised with arches.
