Material and its Properties
Translucent glass fiber fabric "• High Tensile Strength • Durability • Good Thermal Conductivity • High Heat Resistance, Good Chemical Resistance, Fire Resistance • Outstanding Electrical Properties"
Given the hot, humid Amazonas climate, translucent glass fiber fabric is resilient to high heat and the roof continues into the façade to provide shade and shelter for spectator circulation areas and vertical access points. The natural ventilation arising in combination with the façade apertures creates a pleasant microclimate.
