The use of ‘Japan Blue’ pigment (Lapis Lazuli) is deeply intertwined with a number of traditional Japanese art forms, and you’ll find it appearing in various Tokyo 2020 designs and graphics. In this instalment of the One Team Project – an initiative where creators and innovators representing Japan share their visions of Tokyo 2020 with us – Tokyo 2020 emblem designer Asao Tokolo and world-renowned artist Fuyuko Matsui discuss the subtle beauty of Japan Blue, what it symbolises, and how they have integrated it into their creative work.
The PyeongChang Olympic Plaza has the pentagonal Olympic Stadium as an eye-catcher. This stadium is the first temporary Olympic Stadium in history. Next to the stadium is Medal Plaza. On this square the medals will be awarded daily. Besides, cultural activities will also be organised here.
