Winning design

The new national stadium in Tokyo, Japan will be an environmentally-conscious 'urban connector', designed to be iconic while integrating into the city landscape

 


In November 2012, Zaha Hadid Architects’ design for the New National Stadium of Japan triumphed over 54 others to win the contract from the Japan Sports Council. The new 80,000-capacity stadium will unify 290,000m2 of land in central Tokyo, replacing the current structure, which was built in 1958.
 

The building has been designed as an environmentally efficient ‘urban connector’, optimised to modulate the flow of people moving through the site from different directions and points of access. Elevated ground connections will give rise to the geometric skeleton of the building – an intricate assembly of structural ribs that will be covered by a system of lightweight, translucent membranes.

While the stadium roof is designed to form an iconic silhouette that will integrate gently into Tokyo’s urban landscape, the building’s interior will be defined by a strong roof structure that will contrast with the lightness of the translucent membrane structures. The stadium bowl itself will also have a retractable roof.



The New National Stadium of Japan is scheduled for completion in 2019, in time to host the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Furthermore, should Tokyo’s bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics be successful, this venue will be the centrepiece of the event. The construction budget is ¥130 billion (US$1.62bn).
