Building information:

The new tennis stadium built in the appointment from Madrid to host the Olympic Games 2020 is based on a draft of the French star architect Domi-nique Perrault, to his name we must add those of the Structural Project au-thors: L. Viñuela & J. Martinez Salcedo, the Builder: FCC Construcción, S.A. and the end user Madrid Espacios y Congresos. The seating capacity of the three tennis courts is able to hold 18,000 spectators. The special metal trans-lucent facade provides optimal light conditions during the day and makes possible spectacular illumination effects at night. The up to date unique pecu-liarity: the movable roofs transform the closed competition places into open-air courts just by pressing a button.
