Very wise of you. For a start, if you examine the plans carefully, it become apparent that the running tracks in both designs have inside lanes 400 metres long !

I went to Tokyo today and here are some photos.

Very happy to enter the field . Some kissed on the grass and I heard many people never knew the smell of the grass is so fresh. I'll be able to enter the New stadium in 2019 if I apply by the

From SSC which got it from the JSC, new renders!

New smaller design released for 2020 stadium

The Japan Sport Council has released a basic design proposal for the new National Stadium in Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo, which will serve as the main stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

The total floor area is about 211,000 square meters, reflecting a reduction of more than 20 percent from the initial design proposal in 2012. The new proposal, released Wednesday, also gives consideration to the protection of the surrounding environment and landscape.

Under the initial proposal, construction was set to cost as much as about ¥300 billion, more than double the original estimate. The project was met with growing criticism for being too large, so parts of the stadium, including aisles, were scaled down and the cost was reduced to about ¥162.5 billion. The new stadium is scheduled to be completed in March 2019.

Plans include the introduction of advanced technologies, such as an environmentally conscious air conditioning system and seats that can be moved toward the field to give spectators a greater sense of immediacy.

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

During events such as concerts, the seats will remain in their normal position. For soccer and rugby matches, 19 rows of seats will be moved about 20 meters closer to the field to bring the front row near the pitch, which will be only 17.5 meters away.

In consideration of the fact that the 2020 Olympics will be held in summer, an air conditioning system that sends cold air from the backs of seats will be installed. The system conserves energy by utilizing heat from vaporization and cooling the air with pipes underground, where the temperature is lower.

In response to criticism that the larger size of the new stadium would harm the surrounding environment, the height was reduced to a maximum of 70 meters, five meters lower than the initial proposal. This will protect the surrounding landscape and scenery, including ginkgo trees in the Meiji Jingu Gaien area.

For the Paralympics, the capacity for visitors in wheelchairs will be increased to 400 seats. Terminals for information and internal announcements will be compiled in an audio system designed for the visually and hearing impaired.

The design also features disaster management countermeasures such as a quake-absorbing structure, and the stadium is designed to enable a full capacity audience to evacuate within 15 minutes. Emergency drinking water and food will be stored in the stadium as well.

I'm starting to hate these kind of "cauldron secrecy" new stadia design.

What's new? The stadiums aren't designed for cauldron secrecy, they're designed for the sports and the fans they'll be hosting in the next decades of their existence. :lol:

Not all cities and countries have the climate of Athens, Barcelona or LA. Roofs are necessary.

It's been a while since I looked at Tokyo's plans, but just reading insidethegames article on the new stadium, it struck me how busy this place will be during the Olympics

"due to host athletics, football, rugby sevens and both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies at Tokyo 2020"

Retractable seating normally takes a while to move. I assume the football and rugby will take place using the sub-optimum athletics configuration.

Well it's already a Rugby stadium in 2019, but yeah it's what is now the standard configuration of any large stadia that wants to have "National" in it's name. Retractable seating is de rigure now...same for London Olympic Park and soon ANZ Stadium Australia. Wellington is doing the same as well.

I always enjoy watching the Japanese tourists here in NZ when they are cut loose on our parks. They look so amazed at the open spaces. :D

Because they all have their own idea of what a games would look like and they do not like being told that their image will never materialize...

Excuse me... what?

We all have our own ideas what a games will look like in our city or nation. For some people to realize that the image they have is not the same as what will materialize can create discontent with the final product. It's similar to when books become films and avid fans are not pleased with the way the film turned out. They had their own idea of the settings, people, and world, when other people 'tamper' with it they can be very displeased.

What, like Game of Thrones?...which is now getting boring because they are draaaaging it out.

Lets all remember a city and a nation will host the Olympics within the laid out criteria by the IOC. What ever the stadium or look of the games are really is a matter of that nation's individuals taste...They're the ones paying for it in the end.

Stadium murals face destruction in work for 2020 Olympics

A budget shortage will likely lead to the destruction of many mosaic murals decorating National Stadium when work begins to create the main venue for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Members of an expert committee organized by the stadium administrator have argued that all 13 murals at the main entrance, stands and corridors should be preserved because they have historical value.

According to committee member Haruya Kudo, a professor at Tokyo University of the Arts specializing in mosaic murals, an initial agreement was reached to preserve all the murals for about 500 million yen ($4.9 million).

In late May, however, the Japan Sports Council (JSC), the administrator of the stadium, told the committee that the government would only allot about 230 million yen, which may be enough for only six murals of the JSC’s choice.

“If all the murals were to stay, it would show the vestiges of the stadium before demolition,” Kudo said.

National Stadium was built in Tokyo’s Shinjuku Ward as the main venue for the 1958 Asian Games and the 1964 Summer Olympics. It will be torn down and replaced by a new stadium for the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympic Games.

One of the murals features Nominosukune, a legendary sumo wrestler who appears in the eighth-century book Nihon Shoki (The Chronicles of Japan).

The painting, often seen in live TV broadcasts of sporting events when athletes enter the stadium, was created by Roka Hasegawa (1897-1967), a pioneer of fresco and mosaic wall paintings in Japan.

The JSC set up the six-member committee in July last year to discuss the preservation of the murals.

The committee meeting is expected to reach a decision on its plan on June 10.

Demolition work is scheduled to start in July.
