Allianz Arena

The project in this case concerned the possibly worldwide largest membrane roof and facade cover of a new built stadium, and was executed as a cantilever structure of framework joints. For the main structure were used around 5.500 tons of steel. The secondary structure is the construction that fixes the outer shell ETFE transparent air cushions, resistant to rough weather conditions and illuminated in the traditional colors of whichever of the two Munich teams. It consists of 2.800 tons of steel rectangular pipes that make up a total of 2.784 different diamond shapes to accommodate the PTFE pads. Team members of vision4venue were involved in the design and build process, and at the execution of construction of the roof and façade.
