Dossier Kengo Kuma

Uitgever:Arquitectura Viva

  • Paperback
  • Engels, Spaans
  • 80 pagina's

Stone, ceramic, glass, wood, bamboo, metal... a large repertoire of materials, always related to the place, allow Kengo Kuma (Yokohama, 1954) to trace an architecture that is bare and essential, contemporary and at the same time closely tied to tradition.

The latest projects of his studio – established in 1990 and with offices in Tokyo and Paris –, maintain the intimate character and the sophisticated and subtle language of the early works, designed almost three decades ago. They also preserve the desire to create atmospheres where the boundaries between interior and exterior are blurred. The nine projects included here take stock of the current work of the Japanese architect.
