This magnificent, large-format monograph on the famed Japanese architect covers six years of theory and practice through an exhaustive look at over 60 projects, from large (V&A at Dundee, Sanlitum SOHO in Beijing) to small (Sake no Hana in London, Lake House). Kengo Kuma is known for achieving a new kind of transparency in architecture, and is not bound by using only traditional “light” materials. Included is his essay, ‘Small Architecture’, which gives valuable insight into his view that great disasters, not the progress of technology, have been architecture’s driving force throughout history.
