External View Optus Stadium

The Optus Stadium is the brand new 60,000 seat sports stadium in Perth.

Two of the LSAA member companies - Arup and MakMax - have been involved in the design and construction of the roof structure.

The Arup design team attended the cracking one day cricket game between Australia and England for the first major event at Optus Stadium. The feature of the stadium is the lightweight cantilevering roof that has a clean fabric membrane soffit and those huge speakers pack a punch. Unfortunately we lost the day only by a few runs but the atmosphere was great.

 

Here is a closer view of the cantilevered roof trusses supporting the huge speakers, lights and of course the clean fabric roof surface.
