==Structural system==
The rink employs an innovative structural system in which a 90 meter reinforced concrete arch, from which a cable net is hung, supports a timber roof. This causes a stable, double curvature form, though several cable ties were later added to the exterior of the building, linking the arch directly to the outer edges of the roof. Fred N. Severud was the structural engineer for the project.
