Stadium with movable roof!

Singapore’s giant Sports Hub Stadium has just been declared the largest free-spanning dome structure ever built. 

The 55,000-seat stadium stretches more than 1,010 feet across the widest point and can host a variety of games while the entire development features water parks, skate parks and even space for canoeing and kayaking.

The key characteristic of the stadium’s dome is that it uses one-third of the steel weight per square metre, compared to other large-span structures of the same scale.
 It is air-cooled for comfort, and designed with a movable roof and retractable seating to support the widest range of sports and leisure events throughout the year. The stadium can host athletics, football, cricket and rugby, and can convert from one mode to another within 48 hours!

The stadium is surrounded by a mix of sporting, community and leisure venues and spaces. Its master plan includes sequences of interconnected public spaces that are scaled for everyday use and major events. It has easy access to Singapore’s Mass Rapid Transport System, adjacent expressways and road network.
