Yoyogi Gymnasium in Tokyo
This is Yoyogi Gymnasium and was built for Tokyo Olympic in 1964. This was designed by Kenzo Tange and is one of his outstanding works. I like this work best among his great works and the organic and beautiful curve of this architecture slightly reminds me of the works of Santiago Calatrava. By the way, Tange had been a major architect for a long time in Japan and called 'the Emperor' in Japanese architecture industry because he is one of pioneers in Japanese architecture and his influence had been so big. He taught Arata Isozaki, Kisho Kurokawa, Fumihiko Maki and Yoshio Taniguchi in his laboratory of Tokyo Uni when they were student.
