Shinkenchiku March 2022 Special Issue Japan National Stadium
The Japan National Stadium was completed at the end of November 2019. The new stadium connects to the surrounding environment through its abundant use of wood, building height reduced to a minimum, and intermediate spaces created by eaves and engawa, despite being a massive sports facility that can house over 60,000 people for games and events such as the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.
This special issue captures the National Stadium through various themes, recording and introducing in detail the design concept and process, engineering, construction, etc.
The magazine is intended to become a valuable document of the stadium that will be loved by the public for years to come as the “mecca” of sports in Japan.
