1896. Yoyogi National Gymnasium, Tokyo, Japan


Dear Udo,

"The biggest problem, with respect to the interior 
space, was guaranteeing that it not take on inhuman 
proportions when empty or filled with just a few 
people.We wanted to create and maintain a unified 
environment where athletes and spectators share 
growing mutual emotion.

A single space—not closed and oppressive but free 
and open—a space in which the fifteen thousand 
spectators can also move and flow ‘gently’ in 
functional and psychological terms." (Kenzo Tange)

Best regards,
