  • Stockholm Globe Arena is the largest hemispherical building in the world
  • The extensive surfaces of the Globe make it possible for a lot of snow to collect on the roof. The maximum distance that the snow masses can fall is 60 metres. All roofs in the line of fall below are therefore dimensioned for the masses that occasionally fall down the sides. On the eastern side (towards Nynäsvägen) there are, however, no buildings. This is the only place where the full curvature of the arena can be seen all the way down to the ground. There, the safety issue has been resolved by building a pond between the adjacent building parts.
  • There are a total of 144 skylights in the Globe’s cupola. All windows are of the “airplane type" to withstand high pressure and severe weather conditions and remain tight.
  • In total, 28,000 cubic meters of concrete and 3,000 tons of steel reinforcement were used to build the Globe. Were these to be laid in a straight line, they would reach from Stockholm to Paris.
  • The volume of the Globe is approx. 605,000 cubic meters. Were the Globe to be filled with water from a common hand-basin tap, it would take approx. 40 years.
