By and for Everyone
This facility was conceived as the home for information about the nation’s Olympic movement, a joint creation of the Japanese Olympic Committee, athletes, and the general public. Nomura was tasked to help plan, design, and create exhibits and images and videos that immerse visitors in the Olympic experience, informing them about the history and significance of the Games.

Untold stories about the Olympics
Commemorating Tokyo 1964
The ceiling louvers incorporate wood from more than 160 trees cultivated in Engaru, Hokkaido, from seeds that athletes in the Tokyo 1964 Olympics brought to Japan. These materials symbolize the enduring legacy of those games, underscored by Tokyo 2020’s message of “Unity in Diversity.” Wood from those trees has been used extensively in chairs and tables.
The Welcome Wall* on the ground floor is a collage created by elementary and junior high school students in Engaru and Tokyo. They took part in workshops that the Japanese Olympic Committee organized in educating about the Olympic symbol and the Games.
