Really? Just because she draws it doesn't mean I buy it. It's over-the-top for the sake of being over-the-top. And in case you haven't heard or read, the leading architectural community of Japan is finding her design TOOO MASSIVE; and she has agreed to alter the original scale. So there goes your beloved Hadid design.

I would have preferred them gutting out the 1964 stadium (built of course for the 1958 Asian Games) and going from there.



Remove the curved bit of seating and make a proper 2nd tier, then add a roof all around. Make capacity as much as 100,000.

IPC "impressed" following Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Orientation Seminar

Quote:
January 20 - The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has said it is impressed with Tokyo's "infectious enthusiasm and eagerness" to deliver a successful Games in 2020 following the conclusion of its Orientation Seminar today.

An IPC delegation, led by vice-president Andrew Parsons and chief executive Xavier Gonzalez, travelled to the Japanese capital to meet with Tokyo 2020 officials - including representatives from the Japanese Olympic and Paralympic Committees, Tokyo and national Government, the Japanese Sport Association, Japanese Sports Council and national federations - to share information on the Paralympic Movement and its key objectives.

An overview of the sports, an introduction to inclusion and legacy opportunities and information on timelines were also discussed over the course of the seminar.

Meanwhile, the Tokyo representatives gave the IPC a venue tour of many of the sites that will host Paralympic competitions in 2020, and outlined their Paralympic vision and commitment to the Games.

Parsons came out of the seminar in positive spirits and extended a personal thank you to Japanese Paralympic Committee President Mitsunori Torihara.

"The three extremely productive days, which included the seminar and venue tours, are the start of a six-year long relationship and transfer of knowledge with the organisers which we hope will culminate with the staging of the best Paralympic Games ever in 2020," Parsons said.

"All members of the IPC delegation were impressed with the infectious enthusiasm and eagerness of those who attended the seminar to deliver a highly successful Paralympics and I would like to thank Mitsunori Torihara and all who were present.

"We look forward to a strong working partnership in the years to come.

"Between now and the Games, we have a superb opportunity to raise the profile of the Paralympic Movement in Japan and Asia.

"Through working with the organising committee and NHK, who will broadcast the 2014 and 2016 Paralympics, we are confident this can be achieved."

Torihara said the Orientation Seminar had been an "enormous help" as Tokyo continues its preparations for hosting the Games.

"It covered a wide range of topics about the tasks the Organising Committee will face during the next six years," he added.

"I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Andrew Parsons, Xavier Gonzalez and the fellow members of the IPC delegation for the outstanding quality of the seminar.

"The meetings we had during these two days were extremely fruitful and were the first steps of what I am sure will be an excellent and productive collaboration between the IPC and Tokyo 2020.

"Some 220 participants took part in the Seminar and we all learned a great many lessons about the challenges inherent in hosting the Paralympic Games.

"Throughout our preparations, we will exert our utmost efforts to further raise awareness of the Paralympics in Japan and to ensure that Tokyo delivers a Games that will serve as a platform to showcase and reinforce the Paralympic values of determination, inspiration, courage and equality.

"Following Tokyo 2020's success in winning the Games last September, this seminar acts as the starting gun to preparations for the Paralympic Games that will be staged in the city in six years' time.

"In 2020, Tokyo will become the first city to stage the Paralympic Games for a second time and, having seen what they presented in their Bid Book, Tokyo 2020 has the potential to be the best Games ever."

The Tokyo Paralympics will be staged from August 25 to September 6, 2020.

Tokyo 2020 formally establishes Organising Committee

Quote:
Less than five months after its election as the host city of the 2020 Olympic Games, the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) has been formally established. The Committee will be responsible for ensuring the successful organisation of the Games, and its establishment marks another major step on Tokyo’s Olympic journey. As well as the creation of the Committee, it was also announced that former Prime Minister of Japan, Yoshiro Mori, had been appointed as President and Toshiro Muto as Chief Executive Officer of Tokyo 2020.
IOC President Thomas Bach said: “We congratulate Tokyo 2020 on the establishment of their Organising Committee, and welcome the appointments of Yoshiro Mori as President of the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee and Toshiro Muto as CEO. We look forward to working with both of them in the months and years ahead.”

He continued: “As a former Prime Minister of Japan, sports administrator, avid sports fan, and member of the Tokyo 2020 bid team, Mr Mori's experience will allow him to make an immediate impact on preparations for the 2020 Games and provide proper guidance to the newly formed team in Tokyo. We wish Mr Mori and Mr Muto great success in their new roles.”

These announcements came after a series of key meetings were held in Tokyo, including the Multi-Party Leaders' Meeting (Olympic Board), the Executive Meeting at Incorporation, the Council Board Meeting and the Executive Board Meeting. The Multi-Party Leaders' Meeting (Olympic Board) was attended by Yoshiro Mori; Tsunekazu Takeda, IOC member and President of the Japanese Olympic Committee; Toshiyuki Akiyama, Vice Governor of Tokyo; and Hakubun Shimomura, Minister in charge of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games and Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

New Tokyo 2020 President Yoshiro Mori said: “I am honoured to have been selected to lead the new Organising Committee, and I am fully committed to ensuring that we will deliver a fantastic Games that will showcase the power of sport and further reinforce the Olympic values.”

He added: “Now that the new Organising Committee has been established, our work begins in earnest. We will collaborate closely with the members of the Olympic and Paralympic families and dedicate our entire efforts towards the successful delivery of a Games and a celebration of sport that will live long in the memories of all members of the Olympic Movement, the athletes, the spectators, and people watching around the world.”

Newly appointed CEO Toshiro Muto was also very humbled by his new appointment: “I am delighted and deeply honoured to be part of this Olympic journey. I will draw on all my previous experiences and place myself entirely at the service of Tokyo 2020. This new appointment has given me renewed motivation to deliver a wonderful Olympic and Paralympic Games that will inspire new generations both in Japan and around the world to achieve their own hopes and dreams.

“The team will be composed of staff from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the national government, and the sporting communities from Japan and overseas, as well as staff from private sector companies in the future. We are eager to begin putting in place our plans for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games; we are keen to start working on that right away.”

Do you think an architect only draws? Seriously people, I didn't say the design is flawless but an architect, a true architect knows engineering as well.
Yes an architect must do the design, the calculations for all that is structural resistance, wind resistance, foundation resistance according to the type of soil the building is built on and many more.

If she only draws, then I also could draw the stadium floating on air by some mechanism of some kind. Does that make me an architect?
That would make me a concept designer. But can I guarantee that the project can be built? No, I have to submit that design to an architect to do so.

I think he was responding to your fear that the stadium is not seismically sound.

Also, many stadiums have been "scaled down" from their original designs. Does scaling down necessarily mean that the design is different? Did the removal of the retractable roof from the Bird's Nest change the essence of the design? Just wondering.

Didn't one of the architects opposing Zaha's design, Toyo Ito, make it to the top 8 for the National Stadium design competition (chaired by Tadao Ando, no less)?

Masuzoe: A close look at Tokyo ahead of 2020

Quote:
The Yomiuri Shimbun

Newly elected Tokyo Gov. Yoichi Masuzoe said during an interview with The Yomiuri Shimbun on Wednesday that he wants to take advantage of the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games to perform a thorough review of Tokyo’s systems and structures.

He also introduced the idea of having a large number of people trained to serve as volunteer English-language interpreters, and creating year-round auto-free pedestrian zones in bustling downtown areas such as Ginza and Shinjuku, by closing major streets to traffic in preparation for the 2020 Games.

During the gubernatorial election, Masuzoe had said he aimed at making the upcoming Games the “best Olympics in history.”

During the interview, he pointed out the 2020 Olympics will be held at the height of summer and cautioned that Tokyo would “have to address the urban heat island phenomenon in the city area.” He also unveiled ideas that would block vehicles from entering central Tokyo on a large scale, making major streets, including some in Ginza and Shinjuku, into traffic-free promenades all day, and have some portion of road lanes for cars changed to bike lanes. He stressed the potential of such changes, saying, “We won’t have to worry about car accidents and we can reduce exhaust gases, too.”

He also suggested the training of large numbers of volunteers who can help visiting foreigners in English, as an expression of the famed Japanese mode of hospitality, omotenashi. “I want as many people as possible to be able to use English, even if it’s imperfect English. If a local town government holds English classes, I want to see such classes be almost tuition-free with the help of subsidies offered by the Tokyo metropolitan government,” said Masuzoe. “Learning new things would also help older people reduce the risk of dementia,” he said.

Asked about athletes’ dormitories during the Games, he said his government will arrange for the facilities’ electricity supply to be generated by the people of Tokyo. Pointing to energy sources such as thermal energy generated by trash incineration, or hydropower generation by making use of the city’s drainage systems, he said, “I want to be proactive in injecting funding into the creation of these kinds of facilities.”

Paralympic prizes

At a press conference, held on the same day he made his first appearance at the Tokyo metropolitan government office, he voiced an intention to increase the monetary awards given to Paralympic medalists to the same amount Olympic medalists receive, with the Tokyo government bearing the costs. “The reward amounts differ so much between Olympic medalists and Paralympic medalists,” he said.

“If we can gather the funding, for example by asking people in Tokyo to donate, I want to make the rewards the equal for both medalists,” he said.

IOC officials praise Tokyo’s initial preparations for 2020 Olympics



Quote:
The International Olympic Committee’s Coordination Commission is pleased with the efforts of Tokyo’s 2020 Olympics organizing committee so far, Commission Chairman John Coates said Friday following a three-day visit to Tokyo.

The visit represented the first working-level talks between the coordination commission, which will monitor and assist Tokyo’s organization of the games leading up to 2020, and the organizing committee.

“We’re very, very impressed and very pleased with the progress to date, and look forward to working with Tokyo 2020 in what, so far as I’m concerned, is a partnership,” Coates said in Tokyo in concluding the visit.

Masuzoe looks to Beijing as 2020 model



Quote:
BEIJING (Jiji Press)—Tokyo Gov. Yoichi Masuzoe on Friday visited the stadium used as the home of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, aiming to learn from the experiences of the Chinese capital as Tokyo prepares to host the 2020 Olympic Games.

He also inspected a facility that hosted swimming competitions in 2008.

Beijing officials explained to Masuzoe how the city has used the facilities since the end of the 2008 games.

Masuzoe said to the officials that Tokyo wants to cooperate closely with Beijing for its upcoming Olympics.

At the “Bird’s Nest” National Stadium, which was used as the main Olympic stadium, Masuzoe asked about construction costs and the timetable for building its construction.

TOKYO - 2020 Summer Olympic Games / Games of the XXXII Olympiad

TOKYO - 2020 Summer Olympic Games / Games of the XXXII Olympiad

The new 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium, with a retractable roof work, is set to begin construction in October 2015. It’s plans have faced criticism after Tokyo won the vote to host the 2020 Olympics in September.

In response, builders agreed to downsize it in November by 25 percent, to 220,000 square meters, but not affecting the seating capacity. That cut the construction cost from $3 billion to reportedly between $1.3 billion and $1.8 billion, still more than initial estimates.

So is it going to be retractable seating or a temporary platform to "raise" the level of the whole track and pitch for athletics?

Retractable seats...

Yet the futuristic spaceship style of the initial design remains, as do other features including state-of-the-art technology including environmentally conscious air-conditioning and seats that can be moved towards the field for a better view.

Out of the total capacity of 80,000 seats, about 15,000 of these will be movable, according to the latest design proposal.
