New National Stadium - Tokyo

The main inspiration for the form of designed stadium was the nature. Its form makes viewers feel like under the crowns of trees. Beams of lights fall inside the stadium through openwork facade. During rain, the facade works like a waterfall. Water flows from one element to another and is collected into underground tanks to use it again.
