What is transparency? When we apply this term to ETFE COVERINGS, we can say, in a simple MANNER, that it means clearly seeing outside, seeing the clouds pass. This is what is felt inside the Arena Multiespacio. A large transparent canopy that protects customers, and allows natural ventilation of the facility.

Allianz Riviera Stadium The ETFE enclosure rises in the north and south, creating two large canopies that give the whole building a more dynamic look. Its translucent silhouette fills the entire space with natural light. The inner ring of the covering is combined with the ETFE facade, constructed with the same material, which provides protection for the stands and more sunlight for the playing field. The spectacular Allianz Riviera is now another icon in the city of Nice. The new stadium hosts sports and cultural events.

The construction of the new San Mamés stadium was planned in two phases. The facade has over 2,700 slats that are all identical and distributed in five levels. Each piece consists of a metal frame built with a circular cross-section profile. IASO has developed a hidden fastening system, which is integrated inside the profile. The white sheet is perfectly tensioned. The result is a unique facade; permeable to vision that allows natural...
