TOKYO---A prominent Japanese
architect is campaigning to reduce
the size of the spaceship-like main
stadium approved for the 2020
Tokyo Olympics, saying it s too
expensive and would clash with its
Fumihiko Maki, who has designed
some spectacular buildings of his
own, says he s not criticising the
design of the stadium by award-
winning British-Iraqi architect Zaha
Hadid, just the size. His office says
he has the support of 100 other
well-known people in Japan, includ-
"The problems I see with the
planned stadium all relate to the
issue of scale," Maki said in a state-
ment this week.
Both the Tokyo and national gov-
ernments have already approved the
stadium, but construction isn t slated
to begin until next year.
The 130 billion yen ($1.3 billion),
80,000-seat stadium, with an arch-
ing retractable roof, would be built
on the site of the smaller 54,000-
seat main stadium for the 1964
Tokyo Olympics. It would dwarf one
of Maki s nearby creations: the 1990
Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.
The site sits in the middle of a
downtown Tokyo park within walk-
ing distance of shopping malls, high-
rise buildings, a Shinto shrine and
a famous venue designed by Kenzo
Tange for the 1964 Games.
Jim Heverin, a director at Lon-
don-based Zaha Hadid Architects,
argues the area is already a mix of
big and small, as well as styles, so
the futuristic construct will fit right
in. It can also be used for music
concerts and a wide variety of
events, he said.
"The venue is much more flexible
and will get used more," Heverin
said in a phone interview.
He acknowledged the new design
will occupy more land, but said the
new stadium would include green-
ery.The structure will better blend
with the environment with walk-
ways, open 24 hours, to allow people
to use the space, instead of expe-
riencing the building as an obstruc-
tion, Heverin said.
Tokyo city hall said it had yet to
receive an official complaint from
Maki, and had no comment.
Yoshitaka Takasaki, spokesman
for the Japan Sports Council, which
is in charge of the stadium con-
struction, said the design was part
of Tokyo city planning and approved
by the central government in June.
"Basically all the concerns raised
have already been addressed,"
Takasaki said. "We have nothing
more to say."
He wants the design reworked to
"a more sustainable stadium for the
"The damaging effects on the his-
torical scenery, the safety concerns
for unexpected natural disaster evac-
uation on a limited site, and the
exorbitant construction and man-
agement costs are all reasons to
question the size of the building,"
Heverin dismissed the evacuation
fears, saying addressing such con-
cerns is a basic need for any modern

BOSTON---The sister of Boston
Marathon bombing suspect
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was due in a
Boston court in a counterfeiting
Ailina Tsarnaeva was expected to
ask a South Boston judge yesterday
to remove a default warrant issued
after she failed to appear in court
on a 2011 charge of misleading police.
A Suffolk district attorney s office
spokesman says the 23-year-old
Tsarnaeva is accused of misleading
a Boston police detective investigat-
ing the recovery of a counterfeit bill.
He says she did not show up for a
court date after her arraignment.
The spokesman says prosecutors
will be requesting higher bail.
Her brother has pleaded not guilty
to charges stemming from the April
15 explosions that killed three people
and injured more than 260. (AP)
