Designed by world-famous architect Kenzo Tange for the 1964 Olympics, the stadium was home to the swimming and diving events but will host handball in 2020.
The building was considered to be “the birth of modern Japanese architecture” by Kengo Kuma, who was inspired to enter the world of architecture after seeing the buildings and is now in charge of designing the brand new main stadium for 2020. The space has been used for volleyball championships, Westlife concerts and even Britney Spears shows – we’re sure Tange would be proud.
