World-renowned architect Zaha Hadid has designed a futuristic stadium that will be the home of the 2020 Summer Olympics. The Japan National Stadiums futuristic appearance shifts away from the traditional block building stadiums.

The Japan National Stadium gives off the feel of something taken right off the screen of the newest 'Star Trek' movie. The sleek, swooping slopes of the stadiums exterior makes you think that this futuristic stadium will lift off from the ground and turn into a spaceship ready to warp out of this galaxy.

The Japan National Stadium will have a crowd capacity of 80,000 people. The retractable roof will open to allow for natural light to be splashed across the athletes' faces. For the changing of field or court sizes, the seating within the stadium can move to bring the spectators closer to the action. This futuristic stadium will surely be a sight to be seen once completed. Stats for Spaceship-Inspired Stadiums Trending: Older & Mild
