National Stadium, Kaohsiung, TW 2008

Architect: Toyo Ito

The sculpture Let’s Go! is a hybrid between a huge sports shoe, a car, and a ball. It can be perceived as an unusual team bus for a sports team or as an abstract Something catapulted out of the interior of the stadium.
Form, material, color, and graphic relate to the dynamic aesthetic of sports and of stadium architecture and thereby interlock the arena in the interior with the area in front of the stadium. The combination of the various forms and contents creates surprising relationships between interior and exterior, motion and stillness, and function and appearance.
