In mid-July, Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe declared that ZHA’s design for a New National stadium would not be completed and that plans for the Tokyo Olympics-Paralympics stadium would “start from zero.” In response Zaha Hadid Architects has just issued a press release and a link to a 23-minute video presentation. The video, ZHA explains, “outline[s] in detail the unique design for the New National Stadium which has been developed over two years to be the most compact and efficient stadium for this very special location in Tokyo. Zaha Hadid Architects welcomes a new contractor bidding process for the New National Stadium to reduce costs and ensure value for money in terms of quality, durability and long-term sustainability.”
