Notes

The roof is an example of a complex system exhibiting cables working in different ways. Pairs of radial spoke cables are tensioned between chords of the external trussed horizontal compression ring and an inner horizontal tension ring. The whole cable net is pre-tensioned prior to installing the fabric cladding, and the lower radial spoke cables carry the tensioned fabric cladding.
