  • Located at Zapopan, in the heart of “La Primavera”, the famous “Chivas de Guadalajara” football team’s new stadium appears as a green volcano beneath a cloud made of Serge Ferrari composite material.
    Estadio Omnilife, with its 45,000 spectator capacity, was the venue for the Pan American Games in October 2011.

    The underside of the roof, light as a white cloud, is made of tensioned Précontraint 1002 S2, like a ceiling. For this project, the flexible composite material was specifically designed and produced with an opaque layer to hide the roofs interior frame systems and support cables above.
    To ensure VIP comfort, the suites and hospitality boxes also include a layer of solar protection in the form of blinds featuring Soltis. A composite material which features a micro-aeration – allowing for self ventilation; it provides an excellent solar barrier while maintaining the view.
