“The tropical climate in Singapore poses a challenge in the design,” says Clive Lewis, Arup’s lead sports venue designer for the overall site. “We wanted to keep the rain and heat out, but we also wanted it to be an open and dynamic space,” he says.
After much research into comfort requirements and energy use, Arup decided natural ventilation was the best solution. A retractable roof protects visitors inside and out so that events can take place during the hottest parts of the day. The 215,000-square-foot roof will be clad in a multi-layer ETFE pillow and incorporate a matrix of LEDs, making it one of the largest programmable LED screens in the world.
