Long regarded in Japan as a master architect, Kengo Kuma first entered the European limelight two years ago when he won the "Spirit of Nature Wood Architecture Award", being the second architect to win this prize after Renzo Piano. Timber architecture, however, is merely one field in which Kuma has specialised. This monograph presents 14 projects from 1992-2003, including the Museum of Hiroshige Ando and Stone Museum (Toshigi Prefecture, Japan), the Water/Glass-Villa (Atami, Japan), the Plastic House in Tokyo and the Bamboo House near the Great Wall of China. All projects are portrayed in exact technical drawings ful of details and material specifications.
