BC Place’s New Roof – Follow Up

Here’s a video explaining the construction method of the steal masts and cables that will support the BC place’s new roof.

This is a link to a very interesting video broadcasted on the Discovery Channel, showing the 1:1 experimental model of two segments of the retractable roof, that was set-up in Sunnyside, United States. The model is meant to test the behavior under various weather conditions of what will be the world’s largest retractable roof.

Worth watching! For the interesting part skip to 09:50. link.
