Tender for new design of Olympic stadium – Time to make your pitch?

With the first design for the new Olympic stadium for the Tokyo2020 Olympics of the table, with Prime-Minster Abe ordering personally to start again from a ‘blank sheet’, the Japan Sports Council (JSC) published a second tender for Stadium’s design and construction.

The first design made by British architect Zaha Hadid came under fire from the public, as participating construction companies reported that it would be impossible to build within the budget available.  For the new design the government has capped the construction costs at €1.61 billion. Deadline for participation in the bid is set at September 18th.
