#2 gymnasium

Yoyogi Gymnasiums were built about 50 years before for Tokyo Olympic game. There are two major construction, both has unique suspention roof structure designed by Kenzo Tange, the first Japanese architect who was awarded Prizker prize.

I like the #2 gymnasium, smaller one pictured below, its simple and beautiful shape fascinates me a lot.

It has one tall tower off-centered which holds handreads cables that form its basic structure of a roof.

And a view from the inside was just amazing. I have no idea how Kenzo Tange managed the flexible material to design such a big structure.
