Facts

  • The stadium is considered to be the culmination of Kenzo Tange`s architectural career.
  • The curvature of the roof is designed to resist hurricane force winds, which are common to the region.
  • "The role of tradition is that of a catalyst, which furthers a chemical reaction but is no longer detectable in the end result. Tradition can, to be sure, participate in a piece of creation, but it can no longer be creative itself." Kenzo Tange.
