The National Gymnastics Arena, or Milli Gimnastika Arenası, in Baku, Azerbaijan was designed by architects Broadway Malyan to have expansive space that is as adaptable as possible.

Primarily designed to accommodate rhythmic gymnastic competitions,  the permanent seating saw the installation of 3,319 m²  [35,725 ft²] of SPS bleachers for this new build gymnastics arena, which can accommodate anywhere from 5000 to 9000 spectators, depending on the event requirements.

The venue comprises the gymnastics arena, a 2,500 m training hall, a medical centre, canteens, offices, and 16,000 m² of landscaped gardens. In addition to the permanent Sandwich Plate System bleachers, there is retractable and moveable seating and the arena can be easily adapted to host various sporting events and concerts.

“The SPS units were so light and easy to position. We simply followed the keyplan and erected it just like steel – in fact, easier.”

Umut Özdemir Project Management Chief, SinerjiPro (Erector)
