A slightly curved steel-glass structure roofs the platforms. It sits on a row of column pairs at 9 metre intervals. The lengths of the structure can be varied by the spine-like segmentation. The width is also variable.

The roof span matches the narrowing platforms by shortening the cross beam members. The structure follows curves by intervals in the longitudinal axis.
