Tokyo Tatsumi International Swimming Center (東京辰巳国際水泳場, Tōkyō Tatsumi Kokusai Suieijō) is a swimming venue in Kōtō, Tokyo, Japan. The swimming center has hosted several Japanese swimming championships.

History[edit]

The swimming complex was designed by the Environment Design Institute, a Tokyo architecture firm.[1] It was commissioned by the Bureau of Port and Harbour, a unit of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. The building is built largely of steel-reinforced concrete except for the roof, which is a steel pipe space-truss structure. The structural design was by Kozo Keikaku Engineering.[2] The complex was substantially completed in March 1993.[1]

It will be used at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Water polo.
