Abstract
In anticipation for the 2002 FIFA World Cup games joint hosted by Japan and Korea, many stadiums were constructed in Japan. Out of the ten newly constructed stadiums, six featured membrane roofing structure. This paper introduce the membrane structure stadiums in Japan, from those mainly focused around 2002. To verify the reason for applying membrane roofing to stadiums, the characteristics of the stadiums with membrane roofing and its heat and light environment is explained. In addition, the future of membrane roofing on stadiums is discussed. The stadium membrane's current condition and the inspection situation is reported to show the maintenance condition after 16 years from completion.
