Customer Project: Wall Facade of Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany
First Steps with RFEM
Allianz Arena is a soccer stadium in Munich, Germany which hosted the opening match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup. The stadium became a new landmark of the city. The translucent exterior facade emits light in various colors and thus makes the whole arena very special.
The covering of the ventilated facade consists of 768 pneumatic ETFE cushions in the shape of rhomboids that are connected to rectangular tubes. The seamless design of the structural grid allows for effective detailing of the cushions.
