Bilbao is a pioneering city in iconic architecture. The new stadium of San Mamés can be added to these buildings that stand out due to their singular beauty. Its façade is composed of more than 2,700 slats, which all create an enclosure that changes its visual appearance as you walk around its perimeter. Onlyone single effect is achieved with a single type of geometry and highly developed engineering.
System: Monolayer with ETFE sheet of 250 microns, white colour
From its different perspectives, we can observe a building with dynamism, which is achieved through the slats of 5.40 m by 1.20 m, with double curvature geometry. The construction of the new San Mamés stadium was planned in two phases. The facade has over 2,700 slats that are all identical and distributed in five levels. Each piece consists of a metal frame built with a circular cross-section profile. IASO has developed a hidden fastening system, which is integrated inside the profile. The white sheet is perfectly tensioned. The result is a unique facade; permeable to vision that allows natural ventilation of the building.
