Kengo Kuma & Associates: Studies in Organic
Kengo Kuma & Associates
Toto Publishing, Tokyo, 2009
Advocating nothing short of a new approach to organic architecture, Kuma’s vision that is presented here has been born out of decades of research and practice. This timely, compact edition presents a collection of works and projects, research and competition entries, both small and large scale, that consistently embrace exciting structural and material solutions in their designs. Introduced with an essay by Kuma, the edition is clearly presented with colour images, technical drawings and explanatory texts, and features designs for the ICC in The Hague; Tiffany & Co, Tokyo; the FRAC, Marseille; the Cavamarket Headquarters, Campania; and the Granada Performing Arts Centre, Granada; alongside other museums, resorts, private residences, pavilions, tea-houses, and monuments.
