phandrosis Posted September 13, 2014 Report Share Posted September 13, 2014 Now I'm on my phone so this'll be a little sloppy. I was doing my daily round of Tokyo 2020 research just to see what's up, and I noticed this article (http://ajw.asahi.com/article/behind_news/social_affairs/AJ201409120045) that show student designs for the permanent and temporary venues, all made with local lumber. Of course this brings risk of fire, especially during earthquakes, is a danger but preventive measures can be taken and wood itself is cheaper than the amount of metal that would be used. What caught my interest were the pictures! Now these are in no way the final designs, but it kind of gives you an image of what kind of design we might see in 2020. I'll post correctly cropped images once I get home. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
