Steel Roofs for a Sports Complex
Abstract:The new Velodrome is directly connected to a station on the city's rail transit system, the S-Bahn. Next to it, the new Swim Sport Stadium and two additional facilities create an exceptional venue for national and international sporting events. The Velodrome has a capacity of 10,000 seats, of which 6,000 are permanently installed. The Swim Sport Stadium has a central pool with a volume of 50 x 25 x 3 m and a pool for diving competitions with a volume of 21 x 25 x 5 m. The basic idea of the architect was to imbed the two large sport halls into the ground in an urban park planted with 500 apple trees, so that their roofs will look like lakes in a forest.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
