The new Allianz Riviera Stadium has a capacity of 35,000 spectators. It is alsoknown for hosting the National SPORT MUSEUM. Its complex structure of wood and steel is viewed from the outside through the transparent ETFE enclosure. This skin is lifted into two large marquees, north and south, that break the symmetry of the building.
The ETFE enclosure rises in the north and south, creating two large canopies that give the whole building a more dynamic look. Its translucent silhouette fills the entire space with natural light. The inner ring of the covering is combined with the ETFE facade, constructed with the same material, which provides protection for the stands and more sunlight for the playing field. The spectacular Allianz Riviera is now another icon in the city of Nice. The new stadium hosts sports and cultural events.
Monolayer with ETFE sheet of 250 microns transparent cable reinforced
IASO monolayer system
One single ETFE sheet with double curvature geometry, which sometimes can also be contained in the plane. Generally, reinforced by cables in one direction or both. In monolayer applications, it is critical in the initial tension to introduce a prestressed sheet. Knowledge of the subject and a good calculation process will determine the appropriate prestressed settings so that the coverings will work properly over the years.
