Mr. Motokura is a prominent architect and Mr Ando is a chair of Adviser Council which chose Ms. Zaha Hadid' design

Translated by Google Translation

I sent a (open letter) letter like the following addressed to Tadao Ando from me today.

Dear Sir, Mr. Tadao Ando

As a friend of the same architect, I would recommendations.

To be repeated extra effort you and studied architecture at self-taught, so far has created a building that has many excellent, I have always received a deep respect.

Your attitude was one that stands up for his people to no-name is always weak.Behavior and in Kobe-Awaji Earthquake, behavior of the Great East Japan Earthquake has good representation about it. And movement to protect the natural, trying to get her back to nature lost gets a sympathy of many people.
When designing a building, you've continued to pursue the theme of "What is the way of architecture that best fits the environment."
And consideration of the height of the building in consideration the way of architecture and terrain in the apartment of Rokko, construction of terrain for the plant in Awaji Island, concern for the landscape of the underground museum, the tree-lined zelkova in Omotesando , you'll be able to simply friendly relations landscape and nature of the terrain, such as plants and that is the Ando building.

Current crisis of the global environment have been calls, you are going to need, kindness to the environment created by the architecture and the people you called your world has shown.And what you have continued to explore the past, plays a role as a symbol of our society should be headed in the future.Ando, I think of you "to what" people around the world whether they have to realize that now, and I want to recognize once again that the.

Let's consider the issue of "new National Stadium" again here.
This project is inconsistent with (story) mythology of you thought of you ever came built, and architecture, your any way you slice it.
That it would troll the Jingu Outer Garden by the trees cut down should not go with your view of nature that we have been trying to protect the trees in just a little.
Construct too huge, you should also do not fit and considerate attitude to landscape your usual. And how proposals in Omotesando or would reconciling the.
Or If you could have wanted this stadium proposal is not a thing of the scale out scenic, I think your sense of scale (tone-deaf) and ashamed as an architect is a professional.
To people who have not even name a weak that you have lent power always, this time not be a ally Why is.I believe that us to action your courage here.
Because you can that we, including the world by doing so will continue to have the assessment of you who have believed until now.
I hope that you are willing to do the following for you.
Please be frozen once the making Jingu Outer Gardens to a draft of the new National Stadium of this time. And again, it Either transfer project of great renovation plan full of wisdom, please consider whether to build a Zaha proposal to the Gulf region.
The "Proposal of road and wind green" to put the main stadium in the Gulf area that you have proposed certainly the last time, of improving actively natural environment of Tokyo, it was proposed that excellent good representation of the idea itself of you.Do you do it from now.

For you who is responsible for the part of the structure of the country by now, that reverse a ruling from now may not be so easy indeed.However, If this is carried out with courage, consistency of building your ideas and your are kept, mythology and architectural environment will be further strengthened.
Many hurdles due to the conversion of the plan now will be able to go overcome by the power of public opinion and our fellow architecture, and fellow citizens. It is prepared to spare no effort to that.
If you're able to advance toward the new National Stadium, then the Tokyo Olympics, will be a real festival everyone has one heart at that time. It I think this is one of the origin of the Olympic Games.

To have the courage, please take heart the rudder.

Yours sincerely
