Soong-eui Arena park Stadium, Korea - Danpalon® blue - Architect : Shum Sang-Chul, Mooyoung Architectes & Engineerings (Korea) - Installer : Steelige co. LTD (Korea)

Monumental! This is the term that comes to mind when you see the new soccer stadium Soong-eui, in Incheon, Korea. It is integrated into a total of 9 hectare mixing sport facilities, offices, stores and residences, intended to revitalise the economic growth of the city.

Designed by Rosseti, an American architectural firm and Mooyoung, a Korean firm, the master plan of this new neighbourhood reflects the marine culture in this port city in making a reference to waves, winds and ships.


With its dynamic shape and the curve of its roof, the stadium evokes the outlines of a vessel fending the waves. With
a capacity of nearly 21,000 seats, it will host the matches in the local club and especially the 17th Asian Games in 2014.

On the upper part, the cover protecting the spectators is executed in Danpalon®.
”I chose this material for its durability, resistance to impact and because it forms waterproof roofing,” explains Shim Sang-Chul, an architect. Another challenge and a significant one: the length of the required components.

“In some places, the roofing reaches 32 m in length. We needed a material that is available in these dimensions, which is the case with Danpalon®. As itis extremely lightweight, it needs only a thin supporting structure.” The aluminium connectors participate in this clean appearance and delicacy of structure, “while creating a solid whole, made to last a long time,” concludes Shim Sang-Chul.
