WM 2010: Roofing the stadium of the "windy city" Port Elizabeth

Designing the roof of the new Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth and thus contributing to the South African building culture is challenge and honor at the same time. The following article covers the design of the roof shape as a signature landmark and its implementation in an economic and structurally meaningful solution. Frequent wind in the "windy city" and an extreme corrosive environment are part of the boundary conditions that required individual solutions from initial design until final completion.
