The existing stadium should be enhanced to a completely covered soccer arena for the club of Atlético Madrid.
This was achieved by completing the concrete tiers and by adding a spoked wheel roof. In addition to that a large canopy was required to cover the entire main grandstand and parts of the forecourt.
A novelty is the use of two compression and two tension rings for the roof structure. The space in between is filled by radial cables and a zig-zag shaped membrane. A third chord completes the two compression rings to a three-chord truss which spans the existing main grandstand almost column-free and supports the canopy. The canopy consists of radial trusses that are covered by membranes from above and below.
Steel construction, membrane construction and the erection of the complete roof were realized in a short construction period of only one year.
