STADIUMS l DEVELOPMENT PIPELINE


Zaha Hadid’s envisaged design for Tokyo’s 2020 Olympic Stadium


■ Tokyo Olympic Stadium Tokyo, Japan Opening: 2019


Japanese sports chiefs have green lighted Tokyo’s controversial stadium development for the 2020 Olympic Games. Despite fi erce opposition from some of


Japan’s most prolifi c architects, including the former Pritzker Prize winner Toyoo Ito, plans for the Tokyo Olympic Stadium have been given the go ahead. The gov- ernment-affi liated Japan Sport Council has released new design proposals reducing the project’s size by more than 20 per cent and cutting the estimated cost to ¥162bn (US$1.58bn, €1.16bn, £0.94bn). The 2020 stadium, masterminded by Zaha


Hadid, will now be a downsized version of her original ‘bike helmet’-style plan. Tokyo’s

current National Stadium is to be disman- tled and Hadid’s creation is to be built in its place, increasing the number of seats from 54,000 to 80,000, despite the downsizing of the development overall. The green-lit proposal shrinks the overall


space of the stadium to 222,600sq m (730,314 sq ft) in total. The main areas to be pared down are the media facilities and display rooms. The height of the stadium has also been lowered. At its highest point, the building has been reduced from 75m (246 ft) to 70m (230 ft). If the proposal succeeds, the stadium is expected to be open in 2019 – in time for the rugby World Cup and then one year later for the Olympic Games. Originally costs were put at CN¥300bn – something which attracted further criticism from the stadium’s opposers. Details: http://lei.sr?a=4K2i7


■ Everton stadium Liverpool, UK Opening: TBC


Everton Football Club offi cials believe they have identifi ed a site for a new 50,000-seat stadium to replace its current home of Goodison Park. The club revealed plans in 2010 to build a £120m (€150m, US$202m) 50,000-seat stadium in Kirkby as part of a £400m mixed-use development, but plans were rejected by the government. The new site sits within the boundaries


of Liverpool and the club is now consult- ing with Liverpool City Council to see if the new plan can get the go-ahead. Details: http://lei.sr?a=a0C3j
