New Anti-Tokyo 2020 Stadium Petition Mounts Pressure Against Zaha Hadid Architects

A second petition against Zaha Hadid Architects’ competition winning Tokyo’s 2020 Olympic Stadium "has been launched," according to Max Thompson of the ARCHITECTS JOURNAL. The latest online protest "is backed by veteran Japanese architect Edward Suzuki, founder of Tokyo-based Edward Suzuki Associates." Suzuki’s petition "is effectively an English translation of an existing petition by Japanese heavyweights and Pritzker Prize winners Fumihiko Maki and Toyo Ito which has already garnered more than 15,000 signatories." Both petitions claim that ZHA’s design for the 80,000-seat stadium is "oversized" and will have a negative impact on the area’s historic gardens (ARCHITECTS JOURNAL, 5/26).
