A filigree frame construction made of thin steel tubes shaped like a giant bend carries a double high point with textile membrane surface structure. Towards the stage the roof ends on a falling steel arch. The arch is secured by two tension rods. In opposite, along the higher access level, four struts with spread tie downs serve as fixation points for the border cables. In the grandstand area the membrane is attached directly to the steel arch. The high points are covered by transparent, light polycarbonate-panes. The reinforcement of the membrane in the area of high points is due to the static requirement.
