Description   Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium is located in the outer gardens of Meiji Shrine. Befitting of its park-like surroundings, it is designed to include a variety of exterior spaces, and a diversity of architectural expressions. Each building (main arena, sub-arena, and indoor pool) maintains its integrity as a large volume, while simultaneously establishing inviting humane exterior spaces for the public. Together, these elements constitute an expression of 'collective form.' As one's viewpoint shifts, the overlapping of these volumes creates unexpected silhouettes.
