Zaha Hadid to design New National Stadium Japan

Zaha Hadid has been selected to design the New National Stadium Japan in Tokyo.

Hadid has won the competition that invited international architects for their proposals to rebuild the ‘Kasumigaoka National Stadium’ as the ‘New National Stadium’, which hosted the 1964 summer olympics.

The stadium is scheduled for completion in 2018 so that it will be ready in time to host the 2019 Rugby World Cup, and if Japan is selected to host the 2020 games, it will function as the primary site for the olympic and paralympic games.

In addition, the new 80,000-seat National Stadium will also be offered as a venue for the FIFA world cup, the IAAF world championships in athletics as well as host a wide range of cultural and artistic events.
