PARYS STADIUM COVER
FREE STATE - RSA
Project: Roof canopy
Architect: Thibault Faÿ
The Parys Stadium has today no cover which make the games difficult to follow under the
warm sunny days.
This proposal of tensile structure can cover a large area with a light metallic structure reducing the cost of the roof assembly. The installed fabric filters the daylight and brings a rain protection enhancing the conditions for watching the game at the stadium. This type of cover also gives a strong recognizable identity. The curved shapes of the tensile structure will be seen from far away making a call to get together for the event. The tensile structure can also be connected to a rain water harvest system for it to be reused on dry days to water the football pitch.
The same principles apply to the steel cover proposition bringing a more angular and sharper architectural expression.
