The Casal España Arena is an iconic multi-functional arena in Valencia that is to host world-class music, arts, culture and sporting events.
The heart of the building is the large hall with the basketball court, which can be converted to also host other sports or shows if necessary.
The stadium bowl is a steel structure with prefabricated concrete slabs. Eight large longitudinal mega trusses form the roof structure and cross the building from east to west, providing the arena ¬¬with a certain visual dynamic, especially from the inside. The bowl is wrapped by a suspended facade covered with ceramic facets that can be rotated individually to create a play of "waves".
The surrounding neighborhood of the arena will be further revitalized by complementary facilities, including a nearly five-acre public park and new facilities for the local school “Les Arts”.
