Sports Stadium, Dammam, Saudi Arabia, 1968 Project Not Built


“The roof structure of inflated plastic (vinyl impregnated nylon) with an inner bladder filed with air is supported on steel catenary tension members. The King of Sandi 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 Sandi Arabia nestle under an extension of this roof.”
Above quotation by the architect.
