Kengo Kuma: Complete Works
Monographie complète présentant le travail de Kengo Kuma, figure de proue de l'architecture japonaise et célèbre dans le monde pour forger un langage moderne et sophistiqué à partir de techniques et de matériaux traditionnels en Asie. Par Kenneth Frampton.
The quintessential Japanese architect of today, Kengo Kuma has forged a modern design language that artfully combines his country's traditional building crafts with sophisticated technologies and materials.
From his iconic Glass House to Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum, this complete record of Kuma's built work comprises 25 projects to date. Kenneth Frampton frames Kuma's work in the context of post-war Japan's flourishing architecture scene and influential figures, and recounts the international acclaim that Kuma has received.
The heart of the book consists of projects presented in detail, accompanied by Kuma's personal descriptive texts and detailed drawings, and organized by the material themes that have come to define the architect's output.
Offering a rich insight into contemporary interpretations of Japan's ancient building traditions, this beautifully produced book will be an inspiration to any designer who aims to create spaces for history and the future.
