Imagine you are seated in the Stadium in this picture.
As you raise your head the massiveness and the magnificence
of the Arena will take hold of your sight.
Still unfinished yet already overwhelming in magnitude.
The problem is the Stadium is still rising and will
eventually get roofed so the full view will diminish.

When one day the country hosts SEA Games or perhaps even
Asian Games and some sport is ongoing in the field, or
even game ceremonies, the cameras may strategically be
setup in the general areas of the Northern and Northwestern
sides of the stadium so that coverage may capture the crowd
with the hovering Philippine Arena as a backdrop above the roof.
Must be such an awesome sight!
The country should be proud showcasing the new Philippines.

Note: I was not within the Ciudad premises but rather outside and just zoomed-in to get close-up images

I zoomed-in on the part of the building where there are already

emerging outline of a bowl shape. Sa ngayon bunging-bungi pa.
Kumbaga e basag na basag pa yung bowl shape. One to months more
and we should see a more pronounced bowl. Sheez, I realize we've
never had a bowl in this country and this should be another of
the many "firsts" for this facility.
Yes, as you stroll around Araneta Coliseum you may catch a glimpse
of the underside of the upper bleachers but what you see is a portion
and not exactly the panorama of a fuller view of a bowl.
The fact that Araneta is walled-up gives it the appearance of
a round building with an upside-down bowl roof.
This arena is then to be our first bowl like what other
countries have at last.
Araneta has been our bowl as you see when you are inside.
The very design and outside contour of Philippine Arena
lets you see a bowl sitting on a podium from afar.
That is the kind that we have never really had.
I believe that when the tiered planks are finally laid down
for the upper bleachers (bleachers are typically out in the open
and may or may not be roofed, I'm not sure if there is a proper
name for it if within a fully roofed building) the shape of
a bowl will then come out especially when viewed from afar.
Even without the planks yet the fragmented shape is already
appreciable in the distance. What seems to happen is that the
white-painted inclined columns will then be clearly outlined
when the planks are finally laid down. As per this picture
the 4-way inclined columns is suggestive of that powerful lights
similar to what Padi's uses. I'm talking about the rotating 4-rayed
lights projected to the sky which I thought I saw one before.
The true wonder of the aesthetic aspect of this engineering design
will be most obvious once the bleachers above it is done.
In the past everybody here talked about size.
Who would have thought it will blossom into this marvel?
The real thing shows you features lacking in lifeless sketches.
Even in this picture there are mechanism and technology
that are not apparent or observable to plain sight.
Science need not always be visible or evident to the eye.
We believe when the engineers and designers say this building
is state-of-the-art. But we believe just because it does
seem advanced according to what may be seeming to the eyes,
not in accordance to what the engineers mean in technological
sense which we may not fully comprehend.

Obvious ba na amphitheater nga ang orientation, and the largest
fully-covered arena? 1) There is (optional) stage on one side;
2) behind the stage is a bleacher; 3) The stage thus faces the
bulk of the audience at the front and the sides with additional
"audience" at the back, giving you more or less a "surround"
audience; 4) removing the stage leaving only the "back bleacher"
you then get to maximize the "floor" or vacant area (the arena)
and devote it to a full-pledged arena, which in the process makes
the "field" more typical arena-like in setup (centrally-located
"stage") than a typical amphitheater. It was even said that
portions of the lowest audience surrounding the floor area
is to be made removable to achive greater activity area
depending on the space requirements of a particular event (have
you seen in youtube the stage setup of 2012 Europe Music Awards
in Frankfurt that Psy trodded and dashed upon in his number?)
Araneta and MOA Arena differ in shape and audience spread, yet they
(themselves) turn from fully occupied venue (as in a sporting event
where all seats may be occupied all over by spectators and the
event takes place in the center) to amphitheater mode in events
like in a concert where the area past the stage is vacant because
the audiences's focal point is on a stage set-up on a side of
the building (your amphitheater). The beauty of Philippine Arena
is that no matter what the occasion is, you get to occupy the whole
audience area. Another feature of this arena, as reported in the past,
is that for a smaller audience (let's say an audience the size of
Araneta), a curtain-like divider may roll down so that only the
occupied part will be made airconditioned, and thus accordingly
be able to manage as well the acoustics so it won't reverberate much
in the whole reaches of the building. Needless to say, this venue
will be the most versatile and sophisticated facility in the country.
E conceptualized and engineered with foreign technology so what may
we expect. Kumuha pa nga ng sound engineering team in addition di ba?
Lahat ng highest standards tinipon at ibinuhos na dito.
Di kaya sa halip na magkomento ng may kung ano-anong himig e
ipagkapuri na lang natin dahil ang Pilipinas ay in the league
na rin sa world standard pagdating sa facilities?
Tama lang siguro na gawing international standard ito kasi baka
ang maging perception ay sinungkit natin ang naturingang largest
fully-roofed arena yet short of world standard to back it up
ang magiging ending wala naman pala tayong "K" na panindigan
at naturingan na largest pagdating sa capacity lang, no more.
What we rather do is be grateful for this grace.
Masyado nang ahead ang mundo. It's time we keep pace.
At ang mga "remark" na makahulugan ay di nakakatulong
sa pag-angat ng moral at dignidad ng bansang ito.

na magkaron ng notion na "e 50-55K (lang) pala e" and
give it the sense na di pala "ganon kalaki". How neat.
Pride ng bansa ito, it can't be diminished in significance
sa pamamagitan lang ng kung ano-anong tactic thru "comments".

Siguro if kaya pang mabubungan ang size above 50K I suppose
INC would have gone for it. Even at 50K natatawang naiiling
yung pinadalang rep ng Populous during the groundbreaking
saying meron daw 50K (o higit pa) elsewhere --"but
nothing INDOORS (this size)" meaning the others or similar size were
partially roofed and never wholly covered. "No one has done this before".
Araneta is 15K indoors. 1) In the pic, the point where the concrete
meets the roof is the area where the upper audience ends. 2) In
the arena picture here posted by ardvo, the area where the concrete
ends and the inclined columns framework begins is where the lower
audience ends and the point where the upper audience begins,
and the highest point where the inclined columns taper is where
the upper audience ends and where the roof begins.
Araneta is roofed all over dahil kaya pa. The degree of convexity
(sobrang lukong as you may notice pag nasa malayo) makes it possible
to hold up, or else obviously if you lessen the convexity baka
mag-collapse on its own weight. Subukan ng arena na ganyan kalukong
ang bubong baka mag-tumbling ka na sa resulting volume ng building.
Sa upper bleacher nga ng Araneta may nagdadala na ng binoculars,
either pang-japorms bukod pa sa kung meron naman mabibitbit e di
dalhin, bukod pa sa malayo na talaga sa stage. Meaning ang 50-55K ay
sukdulan na kung capacity rin lang. What we rather do is be thankful
na merong alternative tayo na kaya ang Araneta threefold ng isang
salpakan lang.



Why is greater than 50K under a roof already too much?
Kung lalawakan pa ang floor area ng arena, that will require the
roof to further expand. The wider the roof gets the longer the framework
parts get and so is their diameter, which translates to greater weight.
The heavier the load gets, the greater will be the torsion on the
concrete columns which necessitates making them thicher and likewise
the diameter of the steel bars. And the kind of foundation will then
be so engineered as to bear the whole cumulative weight of the whole
structure. Di pwedeng basta-basta na lang sasabihin na lakihan pa ang
capacity in the middle of construction. Meticulous planning yan bago
pa magsimula ang groundbreaking, unless the podium is so designed
as to bear more than what's initially planned.
We've never had facilities this advanced and this grand.
Di sa nakukulangan, gusto lang magmukhang di talaga ganon kalaki.
Gratitude ng ilan ang salat dito at hindi karagdagang kapasidad.
i like your perspective @perspective... well said!!!

This is not a house of worship per se but can function as one. 15 storey high siya. This dome is a multipurpose venue like sports,concert etc. fyi inc is not a sect but an independent christian religion.

More than the assembling of that "front panel" framing the
uppermost part of the whole metal framework above that apparently
is to form part of the roofing support, those "lamp-looking"
vertical components (those standing ones that look like the trunk
of tower cranes) that have been standing there since last month
which seemed to serve as temporary support for the initial tension
trusses have been standing idle. These days however they have companions
in their immediate vicinity. I'm referring to the apparent addition
of newly erected poles around those "crane trunks", those poles that could
form accessory temporary support in the assembly of the space frame.
Having started on that component with tubular base, they may be
readying at this stage assembling the tension trusses together with
the space frame perhaps anytime this month.

We see in the last two pictures the elevator doors that open at the podium rooftop, which we may also regard as observation deck.
