Tokyo Olympic stadium looks like aliens landed downtown   Leave a comment


As we’re sure you’ve heard, Tokyo was selected by the International Olympic Committee to host the 2020 Olympic Games.

Of course, no host city would be complete without a ludicrously over-designed Olympic stadium that looks like a race of aliens that watched Blade Runner on VHS one too many times took a wrong turn somewhere and landed their space ship downtown. Welcome to New National Stadium!

The proposed stadium, designed by award-winning Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid, is intended to hold around 80,000 spectators and would be able to host a variety of Olympic sports. Seats would be retractable to adjust for larger playing fields, and the roof would also be translucent and retractable.

▼ Good thing the seats are retractable, or we’d be watching history’s tiniest Olympic games, according to this sketch.
