dc.descriptionOutdoor sculptures echoing the arched roof at west end of building; The arched roof of the stadium is created from 13 monumental arches, weighing 32 tons each, formed from glue-laminated (glulam) black spruce. These were calculated to withstand the winter snow load. The double-curved roof can host three games on fields running in the transverse direction, or a large professional game played on the longitudinal axis. The bleachers can accommodate over 300 spectators. There are also administrative areas and a restaurant overlooking an outdoor playground with two outdoor soccer fields. The 9,800 sq meter building is partially embedded in the ground for the insulating properties and to lessen the visual impact on the environment, and is LEED certified.
