Exercise 101 – Esteban Ramirez

The Allianz Arena was designed by Herzog & de Meuron Architects and was completed in 2005 for the primary use for the German football teams FC Bayern and TSV 1860. The reason this project is special is that the outer layer of the structure is composed of a lattice of ETFE (ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene copolymer) with lights on the inside of each panel so that the entire stadium can be illuminated in a multitude of different styles.

  1. The Allianz Arena makes use of its diamond panels in a truly unique fashion. I’ve never seen a stadium use such bright illuminated lights to represent their teams before, which makes for a more intriguing concept.

  2. I really like the lattice design and it is very visually pleasing when the whole structure is lit up. It must also be beneficial to the athletes performing in the stadium to have lights surrounding the field for maximum visibility during games. I also enjoy how this building was made to resemble a soccer ball.
