Amazon Sports Complex—Manaus

July 1st, 2011 / By: / Interiors

Located in the Amazon jungle 1,500km from the sea, Manaus lies at the convergence of the Rio Negro and Rio Solimões that form the Amazon River. The Amazon Sports Complex is an integrated sports park that includes multi-purpose venues and a swimming center. The roof structure is made of mutually supporting cantilevers of hollow core steel girders that also function as rainwater gutters. The roof and façade are clad in translucent low-e coated fiberglass fabric that reflects heat radiation, helping to cool the building. The stadium will be one of the first to be LEED compliant.
