Steve Jobs Theater Pavilion


This 47m carbon fibre roof, the largest freestanding roof of its kind ever installed, is comprised of 44 radial panels that connect to a central hub. It was fully assembled on site before being raised into position in a single lift.


Designed by U.K.-based architect firm Foster + Partners, the 80 tonne roof is supported solely by a 7m high glass cylinder, consisting of panels made of four layers of 12mm thick plies.

​The Steve Jobs Theater Pavilion won the Structural Artistry Award at the Structural Awards 2018 in London.
