Model

The membrane roof structure for this seating area was completed before the start of the 2019 summer season. 3dtex and architect Robert Kerbl, who designed the previous roof 20 years ago, developed the new structure. Similar to the previous design, the roof was considerably increased in size due to the increased number of visitors. The structural analysis was completed by zapf & co. from Strausberg utilizing RSTAB.

Structure

The new membrane roof structure has a total area of 12,917 ft². The nine main curved trusses, spaced at 20 ft on-center, are made of glued laminated timber. They are supported on V-shaped steel tube columns.

The coupling and compression members for the longitudinal bracing also consist of steel pipes. The tension cables are round RD 16 sections. The structure is covered with a fabric membrane on the upper side of the glued laminated timber truss.
