Archi5 firm has designed a shelter for spectators at the Léo Lagrange Stadium in France. Instead of being a simple rectangular structure, this cover has a curved and twisted design.
The roof was done in this way to provide enough shade for spectators, as temperatures do become quite hot in the summer months. It also allows people to see the entire stadium better, ensuring that views are not blocked for those sitting in certain sections. Interestingly, the roof can also trap rainwater, which is then reused to water the field and help with conservation. Not only does the roof look good, but it's also environmentally friendly.
Overall the stadium is picturesque, with mountains in the background providing a stunning bit of scenery for visitors.
