JNS Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium

Delhi, India, 2010

This unique membrane roof was built for the Commonwealth Games 2010 in New Delhi over the redesigned exisiting bowl and provides the viewers with excellent sun and rain protection.
Two circumferential basket like supporting colonnade structures independently carry the compression rings as well as the complete ramp system for access and emergency evacuation. Ridge and valley radial cables alternate and create the link to the inner tension ring. Membrane panels span between the upper ridge and the lower valley cable and result in a beautiful lotus like folded plate cladding arrangement.
