Twitter users in Japan have noticed a few similarities between the shape of the $2.1 billion stadium that Zaha Hadid is designing for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and let's just say that they are not entirely flattering. The stadium-as-video game race car is one thing, the stadium-as-Roomba is another, and then you've got the photoshop job above, which compares it to a giant toilet. This isn't the first stadium to draw a comparison to a toilet, though, so at least Hadid can say that hers is a futuristic commode.
