新国立競技場整備事業

Taisei Corporation, Azusa Sekkei Co., Ltd. and Kengo Kuma and Associates JV

Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo, Japan
Scheduled completion in November, 2019
Stadium
Total floor area 194,000 m2
Partner in charge: Minoru Yokoo

This large stadium was designed as a collection of small-diameter pieces ofwood.
The facade consists of overlapping multi-layered eaves.
The areasunder the respective eaves are covered with small-diameter wood louvers in anattempt to express the tradition of beautiful eaves in Japanese architecture inan appropriate contemporary manner.
Square cedar lumber measuring 105mm which is the most common size in Japan was split into three pieces to be used as the louvers, and the pitch of each louver was adjusted in a number of directions as a means to control the volume of wind channeled into the stadium.
The roof has a truss structure created by combining steel beams and laminated lumber with a medium crosssection, utilizing the axial stiffness of wood to minimize deformation of the roof trusses due to wind or earthquakes.

The renderings are intended to show conceptual image at completion and may subject to change.
Vegetation shows an image about 10 years after completion of the stadium.
