Tokyo recently won the bid to host 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games.

the 7 years that separate us from the event will be marked by a feverish city renovation.
Although the last time that Tokyo hosted the Olympics was in 1964, some existing structures will be used during the games.

On the other hand, some facilities will be built from scratch, and this is the case of the new Olympic Stadium, designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid.

The new venue will be located close to Shinjuku ward and will have a capacity of 80,000 seats and a shape that reminds us of a spaceship.

The stands will be mobile, making the stadium adaptable to various types of sport.

What do you think about this venue? Do you like the future of the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo or would you have preferred something different?
