Located near the airport, the project includes a green and wooded area, accompanied by cycle paths and outdoor spaces that will host an arena that can accommodate up to 10 thousand people and a stadium.

The ovoid-shaped roof of the arena is made of reticular beams that start and end tapered and reach 11 meters in height at the highest point and 57 meters in length at the longest beam. Resting on the external concrete perimeter, they connect to a circular central ring. The girders are assembled in segments and ground and lifted into position to be connected to each other and to the central ring, supported during the transitional phases by temporary towers.
