Council stadium Roof

Braga - 2003 - 2004

The stadium geometry is clear in the central concrete grandstands, split by three galleries with a circular cross section that allow to pass through it.

The roof structure is made by two 25cm thick concrete slabs, suspended by a cable system.

This cable system is arranged transversally with respect to the field. The 220m length roof structure is a unique worldwide structural example.

The final design has been developed together with many experimental wind tunnel tests.
