The design for the Wooden Football Hall explores wood as an innovative and flexible structural material. The overall form and inner volumetric requirements have thus been developed in parallel with each other to optimize the structure. The structural system is based on a torus shape that is formed by series of sickle-like arches. The building thus emerges as a coherent structural unit functioning as a shell like entity. The "thickness" of this shell is optimized in accordance with the stresses and deformations the structure is exposed to. Special attention was paid to the development of simple connections. These are solved by piling the intersecting Gluelam layers.
