Overview

Kengo Kuma: Complete Works by Kenneth Frampton

A major monograph documenting Kengo Kuma’s interpretations of traditional Japanese architectureThe quintessential Japanese architect of today, Kengo Kuma has forged a modern design language that artfully combines the country’s traditional building crafts with sophisticated technologies and materials. Kenneth Frampton frames Kuma’s work in the context of post-war Japan’s flourishing architecture scene. From his iconicWater/Glass (1995) to the Nezu Museum in Tokyo (2009), each building is presented through descriptive text, newly commissioned photographs, and detailed drawings that reveal the refined architectonic vocabulary that characterizes Kuma’s buildings.Created in collaboration with Kuma, the projects are organized by materials: Water and Glass; Wood; Grass and Bamboo;and Stone, Earth, and Ceramics.
