The Olympic Ice Stadium at Grenoble

The Ice Stadium covers an area of l1 920 m2 (128 300 ft2) with a roof resting on four supports 95 m (312 ft) apart in one direction and 65 m (213 ft) in the other. The roof consists of cylindrical shells intersecting at right angles, each shell being formed of two surfaces each 61 mm (2.4 in) thick and 1.3 m (4.26 ft) apart joined together by ribs radiating from the supports and diaphragms lying along the generators.
