Is Tokyo 2020 OK? II

Was previously pointed out, stand Engineering District Taisei, roof Engineering District were identified Takenaka Corporation. (Construction communication newspaper November 3)
Although's about Imperial Headquarters announcement that, when what is referred to as how anxious

"Stand Engineering District Taisei, roof Engineering District were identified Takenaka. Agreement, separating the construction and installation and technical cooperation work. Near, on which they have entered into a basic agreement, construction from the standpoint of contractors to perform design how joining the proposed contract of technical cooperation work to do, such as. "

Part of "technical cooperation operations propose such as construction methods from the standpoint of contractors for the execution design" above.

It is written as "contractors makes a proposal for the design."

There? Because he was decided basic design to May 28, should on the basis of it is progressing implementation design, do you do not you builders has bid or proposal on the basis of its implementation design? So each Taisei and Takenaka will do with how much how much! Not a did you say? 's The difference?
And I'm that mean.

Wait Wait a minute, but it was the way side wheels and can press contract, as I and many other people have pointed out even for sure,, Zaha's design design.

"Basic planner for Best design, implementation contractor makes a change."

This alone, although a translation continues to point out that it is a mysterious contract that design supervision contract

The No flame is now?

Are you saying builder to lead-out also to be carried out design to basic design?

When you organize

1. First, although made a great plan that Zaha has Innovation Gunyo
2. Although the Nikken Sekkei it was designed to wipe out the curve you can take Villa
3. Taisei Corporation and Takenaka is I will construction proposed final design!

It's not supposed to be Tteyuu.
Eh! ? This, this, this will do exactly such reason.
So that up to now I was what exactly?

Oh ... speak that happened sobering last year!

"And I'm Zaha had the design of the new National Stadium
I was down imperceptibly If you think "

Although I think Ne Na know ... what are you saying

I also did not know what the difference was ...

Oh ... speak that happened sobering this week!

"I Zaha is a design supervision of the new National Stadium, Nikken Sekkei was down imperceptibly If you think has been the design"

Although I think Ne Na know ... what are you saying

I also did not know what the difference was ...

Head was somehow become likely to ... Toka's or design and construction separating's design

Absolutely and Well mon such cheesy that hey

Whether not it time limit is approaching softened another time?

Tasted a glimpse of the more horrible things

That, serif of Polnareff was floated.

The,, wonder Which of do or should such to this criticism

Site by breath wants to designer architect of I for the first time of the work request of housing in that do not know, budget concreteness also gone bankrupt, I had help over reviewing all the carpenters of builders, , you may hear a story like.

In that case, I was good to ask them to help contractors who, in it is settled you,
In public business relationship, it is no longer of that design and construction isolation order regime I think has become common knowledge,,

If not it, I think that can not bid the construction company.

After the end of the ordinary if basic design, taking the approval, by performing the implementation design after approval, to pass the blueprint is the first time summoned the construction company here.
And phase estimate, construction costs comparison, you will be short setup that bid.

Passed everyone same blueprint and I was thinking just to have a bid of construction costs on the basis of its content but,,

If you read well the article of the previous Ken-setsu communication newspaper It is written in the following manner.

"Technical cooperation operations, ● selection of technology verification and technical proposals ● construction study and proposal review and proposals ● schedule management support and construction process of planning ● calculation of estimated construction costs ● cost management support ● plan professional construction company with respect to the design in general ● such as packaging of professional construction company. "

"Is allowed to participate the builders of engineers from implementation design stage, best, such as in consultation the optimal technical examination and construction methods with an eye to construction, and to confirm the specification."

Jan all.
You will say, all of the usual design practice in to do the implementation design content Yara construction supervision work, here are you seeking to general contractors.

In other words, since not hold the design of Zaha, but Nikken Sekkei tried to somehow, so indescribably become unlikely, and that trying piggybacked to implementation design to general contractors, it is glimpse of such a terrible plan.
In to have, it'll let you be doing to directly construction, it seems to be that.

Thing I mean is,,, still do not you been able to specific design
I have a reason has become self-evident that.

Honest,, Aida's Na are remarks and depressed equivalent Speaking from artist's perspective, it was thought that some courage.

Because, Although it is ago just six months than this, like Takashi Murakami's artists to represent Japan in the contemporary art is this also, has been a very courageous remarks through the SNS (social network) that FaceBook. June 2014 12 date of Facebook Takashi Murakami

"Recently, by the new National Stadium of Zahahadetto, Toka construction costs too high, Toka unfeasible, Toka another draft of architect, I guys liberal system is doing Yaiyai while Motehayashi, architecture powers Japanese technology in to have, shape, which is said to fraud mock Zahahadetto, and ze'll do, and, I do not how why?

"Super-expensive construction costs, it is not the Choice Jan or! Ya~tsu upcoming! What climate is, I is a is disgusting but I! Essentially international, by! Tsu I say if you sell what you have to abandon the game Te, by whether it is okay if you I! parentheses bad it! cheaper think? What! "

"Roughly, What counter proposal to the rear out rock-paper-scissors specific Japanese architect our Zahahadetto proposal, that is the future of marketing, is possibly the venue of Toka next Olympic, if wanted got to try to do the poor properly Tsumashiku, using yo, specific and probably sell. and to Son only, and do play it, but saving Yare, Toka he is restrained gold, Iiki feeling of liberal taste that shoulder pampered in a different dimension to the essence theory of manufacturing, it's ultra-stupid! "

"Guys of liberal taste you are willing Toka review draft of Masuzoe I me know yourself of stupidity that Nokka~tsu one by one to the fucking's it! Politician Gotoki scenarios!

This, Takashi Murakami's remarks also speaking from the standpoint of as an artist, is one of the truth.

The two people of the opinions I have been told both the same thing.
In short, if you admit the design Toka artistry of Zaha, or so admits, Sokontoko the Yare properly!
Contact great's better Do not live but irresponsible!
Japan's uncle much this '20 is rolled shift!

Here my remarks at people as people you know are available well understanding of in one year, am I also basic same.

Because Murakami was like that of me "? Only that oppose the liberal Zaha opponents of purpose" has been intentionally misunderstanding play with, the sides also I've leave reply, including,, reference: the barking but I was barking to master Takashi Murakami

Famous Kenichiro Mogi's as brain scientists on this matter has been referred to from early. In May 2014 dated 30 of Facebook

Will excerpt.

"National Stadium, what should be"

"Is it to do with the National Stadium, or to the guy of future wind has been reported now, or whether dispense with some repair. Because I do not mean being in the construction community, essentially amateur that described below While it is impressive, in short would this kind of thing, and it states that you might think. "

"At the top also in the building of Japan is now the world, that it is, or has received the Pritzker Prize, which is referred to as architectural world of Nobel Prize Japanese continuous, also by the Japanese team in the Venice Architecture Biennale is shining on Top Award it can be seen. in, Japanese architecture, why became the world? "

The architecture in the "modern, writer of the architect, was also a sort of representation of the" ego ". Matter how creative, you can either create a novel design. Architect is an artist, it is also a innovator. However, Japanese architecture is evaluated is not in such contexts. There, architecture of Japan 's new. "

"" Lose architecture of Kuma Kengo-san "is, in other words, when designing the architecture, environment and history of, and rooted in context, that it does not unduly claiming ego of architect. Toyo Ito's architecture to the seen grace, also delicacy, harmony with nature, it is in the continuity of Japan, which has an emphasis on harmony of oneself and others. "

"(Or Venice Architecture Biennale of highest award, the winning Pritzker Prize, Japan the architect of your one representative) this time, Toyo Ito san has raised the voice, by compelling thing, modest mild-mannered Ito's but, dare because he is said to there, it would of seemed to be not be silent. "

"In competition of the National Stadium of rebuilding plan, whether the current proposal has been selected in any circumstances, or when selecting reason what's that, details are not aware of, but as described above, of Japanese architecture flow (and the reason for excellence of in the world) Given a, the current proposal, it is felt to be a too anachronistic. "

"People of the committee that press the current proposal, the inside of that air of Jingu Gaien, I think probably how much walking is. Nearby, there is also Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery that has been designated as an important cultural property, Japanese are clogged in many layers memory of modern. in that space, suddenly is near future helmet, and discomfort that. "

"Public buildings is too important to say I should Susumere it because I decided, and, in particular, when a strong message is coming out from the Japanese architectural world as of this time, sincerely listen was better. the ministry might be going to force the current proposal, the enclosing to revenge eyesore next decades. "

Excerpt far

Motegi's also as has been mentioned, not what has been totally deny the thing called design and novelty of architecture, especially in this time or this time say, even the secondary tertiary such a artistic value basis are treated, it is not brought about only some of the short-term benefit the peripheral site of the moment. To death while others were trying to take advantage of this matter politically at the same time, or ousted, fled as of Dutt, chosen have thoroughly ran to entrenchment, even overwhelmingly himself own value of the entrenchment Sengahazu are being allowed to decay.

Not only posterity to leave the burden at the same time, I also in social engineering Akatsuki always larger cultural to you overlooked this process there is a possibility of leaving the enclosing also.

So, attrition in some pros and cons to each other, Japanese culture people with guts to'm speaking the plunge about this matter!

Such as, last Waruagaki began under the circumstances.

Stand Engineering District Taisei, roof Engineering District were identified Takenaka Corporation.
(Construction communication newspaper November 3)


Japan Sports Promotion Center (JSC) is October 31, WTO (World Trade Organization) Subject to the New National Stadium new 営工 events of stand Engineering District in public type proposal Taisei, roof Engineering District were identified Takenaka .

Oh,,,, or still came so.
Well, if you just read the headline of this article, or if you do not an expert, I'm contractor has been determined, as I'm going to do more and more work.
Pros and cons, was good was good, it'll'll bad bad, do you think I'm with.

It is, however, as long as they see this announcement,

New National Stadium, Tokyo Japan

Dear Mr. Coates:

We are very happy with the news reports about your successful visit to Tokyo last month. Your frequent remarks encouraging the use of existing facilities for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics inspired confidence in the IOC’s commitment to sustainability.

However, we are concerned about the disturbing contradiction between what Mr. Yoshiro Mori, President of the Organising Committee, said when he commented on your Commission’s visit and his remarks to a Japanese newspaper. We ask you to reaffirm the IOC’s commitment to sustainability with the Japanese organizing bodies and to remind them of President Mori’s promise to review proposed plans.

When speaking to the English press, President Mori appears to respect your advice to use existing facilities. But in fact, he intends no additional review of proposed Olympic venues. He has given a free hand to the Japan Sports Council (JSC) to demolish the present national stadium. This move is a violation of the Olympic Movement’s Agenda 21 and renders the currently proceeding discussions around Olympic Agenda 2020 meaningless.

We are writing on behalf of all the members of the Open Platform for Sustainable Society (OPSS), a voluntary group seeking transparency and consensus in the planning process of the Olympic stadium and other important public projects in Japan. Sachihiko Harashina, Dean, Faculty of Policy Informatics, Chiba University of Commerce, Prof. Emer., Tokyo Institute of Technology, chairs this eminent group of academicians and environmentalists.

Let us explain what President Mori said to the English media and how it differs from what he said to the Japanese press. 

Here are President Mori’s remarks in the article, Successful first visit for IOC Coordination Commission to Tokyo, which appeared in Around the Rings (ATR), 06/27/14. Of the venue plan review, President Mori said, “ I informed the Coordination Commission that, based on such aspects as the kind of legacy we will leave, the impact of the Games on the lives of Tokyo residents and the cost of construction and maintenance of the venues, the Organising Committee will examine all issues closely and collaborate with the IOC, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), and both domestic and international sports federations, to ensure the success of the Games.”


The same article continued: “The local organizers also took this opportunity to update the IOC on their on-going review of their bid plans, including the venues. …… The objective is to refine the legacy and operational assumptions of Tokyo’s plans. The Tokyo organizers are looking to ensure that their Games leave a sustainable long-term legacy to the host city and its citizens. The review is being carried out in cooperation with all the key national and international stakeholders.”

We contend that any review of plans ended some time ago. To a reporter for the Tosei Shimpo, a Japanese newspaper specializing in Tokyo-focused news, President Mori denied any review of the proposed new national stadium. The article appeared in the paper’s June 27, 2014 issue, quoting his remarks that there will be no further venue changes other than those discussed at the preliminary meeting with the Coordination Commission on June 24, 2014 and that the IOC said the review should not drag on for ever.

In keeping with President Mori’s denial, the JSC has stripped the stadium benches and sold them. (Please see the first step to the stadium’s demolition in the attached clipping from the Asahi dated Saturday, July 5, 2014.)

Although demolition has been briefly postponed by the failure of bidding as the JSC miscalculated the vast cost of it, the second bidding deadline Wednesday, July 16, is looming. The JSC is clearly proceeding with its plan to dismantle the stadium.

The present stadium is perfectly renewable and usable for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Renovating this stadium will set an impressive standard for future Olympic stadiums and many other stadiums and public buildings all over Japan. Moreover, the whole of Jingu Gaien, where the stadium is located, is a historic and cultural preservation district. Architects engaged in the past development projects have successfully struggled to preserve the area’s beautiful landscaping and verdant environment as Mr. Fumihiko Maki did with the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.

The JSC’s rush to destroy the existing stadium is contrary to the IOC’s policy of sustainability and legacies. President Mori’s laissez-faire attitude to the JSC suggests that he does not really respect the IOC’s guidelines.

The JSC invited representatives of architectural societies for a meeting on Monday, July 7 and declared no change in the proposed new national stadium plan except some small details. Mr. Maki and several other architects refused to attend for reasons of discussions held behind the closed doors and the elimination of citizen representatives.

With a keen awareness of the need for more open, constructive discussions and planning for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, we are organizing a series of symposia. A broad cross-section of speakers, media reporters, and ordinary citizens will participate. The serial events, The Matrix of sustainability Assessment, will begin on Friday, July 11. We will keep you informed of the outcomes of our discussions.

We ask you to exert your influence with the JSC and its supervisory organizations, including the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, the Japan Olympic Committee, and the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture. Remind them that the IOC means it when it recommends using existing facilities for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Please order the Organising Committee to stop the stadium demolition. They have not conducted a proper environmental impact assessment for this project. A proper EIA procedure based on the international standards requires comparison of the proposed project with alternative options including the renovation of existing facilities.

We trust that your leadership under the Olympic Movement’s Agenda 21 will guide the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee and the JSC in a desirable direction along the strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement.


Sincerely yours,
