Thank you Anirudh. The panels are fixed, due to the stadium being in a harsh desert climate we opted for minimal maintenance, which would be better for the long term reliability to the club. Whether they are open or not is dependent on air flow requirements for keeping the football field grass alive and ventilating the public concourse. Some are open for views out from lounges. But the lounges are glazed so it has no impact on airflow.

This was all driven by cfd modelling digitally and a 2m diameter physical model was built and tested in a wind tunnel.

that's really beautiful and amazing, congrats! Question, are those panels fixed or operable? Are they performative in any way? The way they become canopies is really neat.
