The stands of the Wanda Metropolitano are completely covered

This Friday, 28th of July, the installation of the last radial panel of the roof over the south end of the Wanda Metropolitano has finished. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
The installation of the panels have taken four months. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
The roof has 96 radial panels, custom-made for the Wanda Metropolitano. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
The design of the roof is by Cruz y Ortiz. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
The schlaich bergermann partner design studio, which has also worked on other iconic roofs in the world of football such as Maracaná and Johannesburg's Soccer City, is responsible of the engineering. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
The radial panels get lighter in colour with time until they unify after a few weeks. In the image, you can see the difference in the tone of the ones installed before (left) and the last ones (right). / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
FCC, in charge of the construction, works on the heat-sealing of the seams between the panels that will protect the stands from the rain. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
The works on the installation of the membrane of the projection also progress. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
The membrane of the projection is made with the same material as the radial panels: polytetrafluorethylene. A very translucent material, very resistant and light. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
The projection now covers half of the west stand. / PHOTO: Alberto Molina.
