New Braga Stadium Roof

Braga - 2003-2004

The geometry of the Stadium is characterized by rigorous reinforced concrete structure of the two central stands.

The body of the steps is cut by three circular section tunnels allowing people to cross. Stands roof has been designed by using two laminar slabs of reinforced concrete, with a 25 cm thickness, suspended by a simple cable system arranged transversally across the pitch.

The 220 metres rood span is a unique example in the world, from a structural point of view. The detail project has been developed with extensive experimental research in wind tunnels.
