Architecture Review: Fancy PC Roofs

At the last ICIS Training Seminar in Brussels my colleague Peter showed a picture of the roof of the Athens Olympic stadium in Athens to demonstrate the uses of polycarbonate. I wondered idly whether the new Wembley Stadium roof was polycarbonate, checked on Google, and yes it is. So is the roof of the new Olympic stadium in Beijing, Barcelona’s Nou Camp stadium, the Emirates stadium in London and Stadium Australia in Sydney. So in the spirit of the Big Lorry Blog, which shows endless pictures of big trucks, here is a string of glossy photos of fancy polycarbonate roofs…
