Description

The objective of Kengo Kuma is to erase architecture: finding harmony between natural and artificial and mediate the encounter between man and the environment. The drawings collected in this book tell the fading of architecture through textures drawn in graphite that overlap different layers of land, building and sky, in a harmonious whole. Initial sketches go alongside with the study of the technical details that helped to achieve the final result. The use of natural materials - wood, bamboo, stone, rice-paper - merged with technological innovation and compositional skill combines Eastern traditions and looks to the future.
