Entry Description

Singapore National Stadium is a state-of-the-art 55,000 seat sports venue, air-cooled for comfort and designed with a movable roof and retractable seating to support the widest range of sports and leisure events throughout the year. It is the first stadium in the world custom designed to host athletics, football, rugby and cricket all in one venue. With a span of over 310m, the National Stadium is the largest free spanning dome structure in the world – and an awe inspiring event space, exemplifying the successful fusion of architecture and engineering. The design is focused on creating a close relationship with the city by opening the interior seating bowl and roof towards the waterfront and the city skyline providing spectators with breath-taking views.
