The design responds to the city’s unique climate and incredible skyscapes.
The design responds to the extreme heat and cold experienced throughout the year with a “smart roof” design. Through shading and allowing cooling breezes through the bowl in the summer, but blocking the wind and allowing additional sun into the stadium in winter, the design takes best advantage of the site’s climate.
Conceived as an expression of the local landscape, the envelope is divided into a “stone” base, an aeolian ripple “field” façade, and the “sky” roof. Inspired by natural fractal patterns, the roof geometry is optimised for structural efficiency, but arranged from small to large panels to evoke the feeling of a clearing sky.
This concept design formed the basis of tender requirement documents for the City of Regina’s public-private-partnership RFP.
