LSAA (Lightweight Structures Association Australia) 2016 Conference
Stadia roof typology through design methodology:
The large urban scale of stadiums means the structure often simultaneously dictates the form and the architecture of the venue, though for the large span stadium structures only a limited number of typologies can be identified. It is a challenge to methodically select the best fitting structure while maintaining a fresh and different aesthetic language. By illustration of various case studies, Ron will elaborate on a number of structural stadium roof typologies, both lightweight and heavy, and how these were developed architecturally and structurally.
