Allianz Field is the permanent soccer-specific stadium home to Minnesota United FC. The iconic feature of Allianz Field is the dynamic skin which wraps around the stadium. To integrate geometric control and PTFE fabric analysis, Walter P Moore created a digital workflow in collaboration with Populous as the architect. This enabled Walter P Moore to rapidly analyze the PTFE skin, adjust the driver pipe spacing so the PTFE wasn't overstressed, and then for the architect to take the new geometry and adjust it as desired for architectural form, which Walter P Moore could then re-analyze. Ultimately, the digitally controlled geometry model of the driver pipes was delivered to the steel fabricator to facilitate production of the HSS pipes.
