Stadium for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

The roof structure of inflated plastic (vinyl impregnated nylon) with an inner bladder filled with air is supported on steel catenary tension members. The King of Saudi Arabia and his guests will sit between the two concrete columns, which support the shade roof as well as the water tank and lighting system. The relatively few automobiles required in Saudi Arabia nestle under extensions of the roof.
