The Twist: Tokyo Olympic Stadium Competition

Tokyo Olympic Stadium Competition: The Twist

Preview of a competition entry for the Tokyo Olympic Stadium.

Designed as not only a sports stadium, but as a city fragment, the design by MenoMenoPiu Architects + FHF Architectes is an attractor: innovative and a generator of vitality. Given the name The Twist, their proposal for the Tokyo Olympic Stadium is expanding in order to better reach users’ requirements: proximity, diversity, and accessibility.

The architecture connects gardens, squares, covered pedestrian streets, gathering spaces and induce new urban compartments. Their design is gradually unrolling and forming the built space with a slope of 2%, serving the 80 000 places (with a visibility angle that grows from 20% in the bottom part to 45% at the top part of the gardens). This disposition aims to offer to the public a perfect visibility from all the gardens. The slope also facilitates the access in the building for people with motor deficiencies.
