The first Italian monograph on the young Japanese architect's work.
[Kengo Kuma / Works and Projects] This volume complements the travelling exhibition on Kuma’s projects which opens in Syracuse (Sicily) in May. Kuma’s creative process and his painstaking work on the material in order to transform it into a building is documented through the presentation of the most important of his architectural works designed between 1994 and 2004. Luigi Alini’s essay describes the artist’s formative years, analyzing the various aspects of his research through themes and compositional mechanisms that have remained constant, his study and profound knowledge of materials, and the symbiosis between architecture and nature. A selection of Kuma’s writings completes the volume.
