Notes

The Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium Al Ain is the new civic landmark of the city and is used by the successful Al Ain football club. The geometry of the roof is developed in order to provide full shading over the playing field and the stands from 5:45 pm reducing the solar energy gains during events to a minimum but allowing natural turf to grow. The striking roof geometry consists of a primary steel structure with a PVC/PES membrane cladding. The exterior palm bole facade consists of a steel diagrid structure with 612 individual adjustable membrane panels to achieve maximum shading but also to allow possible views from the inside. The membrane panels in combination with the primary steel structure is an homage to the palm bole - an emblem of the Oasis of Al Ain.
