A roofing made of steel and fabric membranes was designed for the football stadium in San Bernardo, a city in the south of Santiago de Chile. The elegant, curved design in lightweight construction now also covers the standing area.
The main structural elements, such as arches and bracing curve members, are made of steel and have a total span of ~ 241.1 ft between the concrete pile supports. The cladding system consists of a series of tensioned fabric membranes with a width of ~ 10.5 ft, which span a length of ~ 23 to 42.7 feet and are surrounded by corner cables.
This roofing system creates a transparent picture of the roof while protecting spectators from the effects of weather at the same time.
