Framework

Because of their size, the first and second framework are assembled in one piece directly. All other frameworks however are prefabricated in two pieces, so they can be assembled next to the construction site just before installing them in the protostructure.

The Net and The Surface

The net, which forms the center of the protosphere will be prefabricated in one piece and will be attached to the wooden structure as one of the final steps.

The surface around the net will be prefabricated in two main parts forming the east and west part, as well as 8 pieces which will be installed between them.
