#1 gymnasium

This is the bigger gymnasium of Yoyogi called #1, it is still in use for many kind of events even after 50 years after its construction, and will be used for the next Tokyo Olympic game in 2020. We should be proud of this beautiful property as a cultural heritage.


It has two big towers and hangs cables between them just like a suspension bridge. The concept is similar to #2 ( related page is here ), but more gigantic and complecated.



I also like its lamp-posts on the street designed together with the architecture. It's dynamic posture is created only by 4 narrow simple stems.
