استادیوم فوتبال / بیسبال با زمین بازی متحرک در ژاپن
ین استادیوم فوتبال – بیسبال حدود ده سال پیش ساخته شده، ولی جالب و تحسین
برانگیز بود. استادیوم سرپوشیده ای که وقتی در آن بیس بال بازی می شود،
چمن ها در بیرون از استادیوم نور می خورند و رشد می کنند، و هنگامی که قرار
است فوتبال بازی شود، زمین چمن به داخل استادیوم سرپوشیده می رود.در آنجا
یک چرخ هم می زند تا تماشاگران بیشتر به زمین مسلط باشند و بتوانند پشت
دروازه هر دو تیم، آنها را تشویق کنند.
Amazing! only Japanese can imagine & execute!! Sapporo (A
commercial city in northern Japan on western Hokkaido) stadium Seating
capacity of 42,122, what’s unique about this Stadium is that, it’s an
indoor stadium with the playing field out side, and when required, the
field will move inside the stadium… and not only that, the field once
inside it will rotate within its axis to ensure the spectators will get a
all round view of the game being played…
The highly advanced and technological stadium ‘Sapparo Dome’ is a
multifunctional and innovative framework that is able to easily
transform itself from a football (soccer) stadium into a baseball park
as seen at the image below.
The system is as simple as it is sophisticated. Raised on a pneumatic
system, the playing field is made to rotate and pass through a
mechanized 90 meter opening of two moving walls. The field can either be
placed in an artificial basin below the stadium or transported outside
where the grass can grow naturally. The whole transformation process
takes only 5 hours to complete.
The stadium was constructed by a group led by architect Hiroshi Hara. It
has the shape of a large ’8′ which is created from the union of the two
lengthened circumferences. One of these circumferences constitutes the
actual stadium: the arena is characterized by a single ring of
continuous tiers which form a circle around the conical surface.
Tribunes are automatically moved throughout the field depending on the
sport – a rectangular tribune is used for a soccer field, by rotating
the tribunes a diamond shape is formed for baseball.
The dome was inaugurated on 02 June 2001 and also serves as a meeting
place for local citizens, consequently the stadium is nicknamed ‘Hiroba’
(the public square). Moreover, the stadium offers a great attraction,
namely the existence of a 53 meter high cupola from where there is a
beautiful view over the city. From the outside, the stadium looks like a
futuristic complex thanks to the aerodynamic shape that can open and
close depending on
