The Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw, Poland is currently the highest football stadium being built for the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship.
The winning architectural concept developed by JSK Architekci is called Stadium Lantern. The distinctive shape was chosen to be easily recognisable and associated with the dynamic city.
The shape of the stadium is highlighted by the innovative design of its external walls.
For the first time, all four stands of the stadium are covered with a roof of a PVDF coated PES-PVC membrane with a total expanse of 52.000 square metres.
The mesh is anchored by steel rings placed around the entire body of the stadium. The covering lends lightness and transparency to the massive structure. The colors of the external walls of the stadium can be changed using a sophisticated lighting system.
