Its unusual undulating silhouette – the answer of the geometry of the arena – grants the arena the picture of a shapely object, raising its integration into the living scenery. The mild cover construction comprises of wide sunken appearance shaping an equable, flowing frontage that follows the undulations. The bright-colored optical fiber mesh boosts this result, its coloration producing depth and spirit. The semitransparent surface imbibes and reflects the exchanging air of the daylight.
Planned for both football game and rugby games, the arena has 3 levels with seats for around 68,000 viewers. The angle of tendency implies that whole the seats own the greatest potential sighting of the pitch. The inside of the arena is planned to focus whole interest upon the pitch, thereby producing an air of familiarity and excitement.
The roof construction is a combination of a inactive roof with radial structural arrangements. The undulating roof is covered with laminated secure glass, and on the internal with a diaphanous cover shell. The place between the glass screening and the cover integrates technological components so much as populace address arrangement and illuminating as good as tendering climate security and a sound-absorbent intensity.
