AV 167/168: Kengo Kuma



AV 167/168: Kengo Kuma. Atmospheric Works 2000-2014

In Kengo Kuma’s varied body of work, communion with nature is expressed in the lyrical abstraction of bareness, but also in the tactile palette of materials extracted from the earth. Using these, he creates intangible atmospheres and subtle worlds, linking his output to a certain spirituality that takes aesthetic experience to a higher level of contemplation. This volume examines more than 30 of Kuma’s most compelling recent works, and groups the individual projects into a progression of materials – from stone and ceramic to metal, glass, wood and bamboo, and finally concluding with fibres. Included are yet to be realised major projects in Spain, China, Italy and Switzerland.
