Kengo Kuma’s Architecture

We’ve alway been a big fan of Kengo Kuma, one of Japan’s, and (soon) the world’s, most celebrated architects. So you can imagine our delight when The New York Times asked us to help produce a story about him.

The story’s out over at T Magazine and we couldn’t be happier with it –  and also Stefan Ruiz’ photos, with whom we so much enjoyed working. The article features several of our favorite Kengo Kuma projects, including the Fujiya Inn in Ginzan, and Wooden Bridge Museum in Yusuhara.

We can’t deny having been a bit skittish when visiting KKAA, Kuma’s Tokyo-based studio, for the interview. It turned out that Kengo Kuma isn’t just a highly accomplished and talented architect, but equally a warm and welcoming person. More photos in our portfolio.
