The architecture of the hall is sculptural, but simple wood construction. The main facades and 7 °slope roof all are clad with white industrial aluminum.

This framework defines a smooth shape on the outside, and a rich and complex space inside.

Inspiration from architect:

Such as roofing, facades are inclined inwards, giving the impression of a large tent raised by the geometry and continuous material.
