Singapore's new national sports stadium has been named as the sports building of the year and the world's largest free-spanning dome. It measures 310 meters across and the roof can be opened or closed according to the climatic condition. A group of engineers and designers from Arup, DP Architects and AECOM designed this sports hub on a 35-hectare waterfront-site in Kallang, south-east Singapore. The complex contains an indoor stadium, water sports center and a museum to become the state's national stadium.

The stadium is used for a range of sports activities including athletics, cricket, football and rugby, as well as music concerts. According to the team, the roof is left open when the stadium is not in use, helping the grass to be in good condition. panels within the roof can slide open and close for heavy rain, or to keep the space cool in high temperatures.
