The World’s Largest Free Span Dome

Located on a stunning, central, 35 hectare waterfront site, the Singapore Sports Hub provides a unique ecosystem of sporting, retail and leisure spaces, at the pivot between Singapore’s expanding city centre and the wider public community. The innovative design, led by architects and engineers from Arup, is a model for future sustainable stadium design.

  • As a new cultural icon, the design has focused on creating a close relationship with the city by opening the interior seating bowl and roof towards the waterfront and the city skyline providing spectators with breath-taking views. Photo credit: Christian Richters
  • The moveable section of the roof is clad in translucent ETFE pillows and incorporates a matrix of LED lighting and, at 20 000 sqm, it is one of the largest LED displays in the world. Photo credit: Arup Associates
  • The dome roof form was chosen as it is inherently a highly structurally efficient geometry for a roof structure of this scale, especially one that integrates a retractable roof. Photo credit: Christian Richters

  • The Stadium incorporates a moving tier of seats that can be pulled forward when the athletics track is not in use. This improves proximity to the pitch and thus enhances spectator experience and atmosphere. Photo credit: Christian Richters
