Kengo Kuma : selected works by Botond Bognár( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Increasingly the recipient of international renown, Kengo Kuma's work is characterized by a delicate simplicity and minimalism, incorporating a wide range of ephemeral transparencies. Their vibrancy is achieved largely by the extensive use of screens: metal, wooden, bamboo, and even stone louvers or slats, as well as paper, plastic, and glass surfaces or membranes. His use of new, sophisticated, and efficient technologies, his sensitivity to site, and his attention to the ecological and prevailing social context of his work are all explored in this monograph. This book features twenty-four of Kuma's most important projects, including many of his recent works such as the Museum of Ando Hiroshige, the Stone Museum, the Horai Onsen Bath House, the Louis Vuitton Tokyo Headquarters (One Omotesando), and the Shinonome Apartment Building."--Jacket

The book also includes an extended essay on the evolution of the architect's work, from the founding of Kengo Kuma and Associates in 1990 to the present. An accompanying exhibit - the first retrospective of the architect's work, also titled Material Immaterial - displayed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in late 2008 and will travel to locales around the world over the next two years."--Jacket
Kengo Kuma : breathing architecture : the teahouse of the Museum of Applied Arts Frankfurt by Kengo Kuma( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kengo Kuma's Teahouse is a masterly reinterpretation of a classical Japanese building type. Delivered in August 2007 for the Park of the Frankfurt Museum of Applied Arts (a Richard Meier Building), Kuma's innovative structure in flexible, semi-transparent, 'breathing' Tenara-Membrane - inflated by means of a pneumatic system to a blossom-like form - houses in the interior the classical elements for Japanese tea ceremony. Integrated LED technology allows the use of the teahouse at night; the interior can be heated by way of the membrane

The very small home : Japanese ideas for living well in limited space by Azby Brown( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Very Small Home is an inspiring new book that surveys the creative design innovations of small houses in Japan. Eighteen recently built and unusual houses, from ultramodern to Japanese rustic, are presented in depth. Particular emphasis is given to what the author calls the "big idea" for each house-the thing that does the most to make the home feel more spacious than it actually is. Big ideas include ingenious sources of natural light, well thought-out loft spaces, snug but functional kitchens, unobtrusive partitions, and unobstructed circulation paths. An introduction puts the houses in the context of lifestyle trends and highlights their shared characteristics. The Houses section details each project the intentions of the designers and occupants are explained. The result is a very human sensibility that runs through the book, a glimpse of the dreams and aspirations that these unique homes represent and that belies their apparent modesty. The second half of the book is devoted to illustrating the special features in the homes, from storage and kitchen designs to revolutionary skylights and partitions. Building small can be a sign of higher ambitions, and those who read this book will undoubtedly grow to appreciate that building a small home can be an amazingly positive and creative act, one which can enhance one's life in surprising ways. In The Very Small Home, Brown has given home owners, designers, and architects a fascinating new collection of ideas

Glass/Wood : Erieta Attali on Kengo Kuma by Erieta Attali( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kengo Kuma (born 1954) and Erieta Attali (born 1966) complement one another perfectly in terms of their artistic statement: both of them focus on the inclusion of the landscape. It is not the architecture as such that plays the primary role but the way it communicates with the outside, the surrounding world. Details from nature and the intricate connection of interior with exterior space characterize the photographs by the first-class photographer Erieta Attali. In his unique works, Kengo Kuma combines Japanese traditions in architecture with those of modern architecture. His architecture constitutes a bridge where the individual and nature meet. Kuma became famous in the West for his sensitive extension to a mid-century icon in New Canaan, Connecticut, which this exquisite monograph insightfully discusses and portrays

Kengo Kuma by Kengo Kuma( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il volume illustra l'opera completa di Kengo Kuma, cercando di svelare il continuo e dialettico rapporto tra materia e forma che l'architetto continuamente insegue e realizza nei suo progetti. L'estetica zen è la fonte di ispirazione di Kuma. Con l'aggregazione di pochi elementi, in sintonia con la linea concettuale indicata proprio dalla filosofia Zen, l'architetto definisce spazi di pura contemplazione. Spazi fluidi in cui il vuoto si manifesta come presenza e non come assenza, diviene luogo di pensiero e non silenzio sterile. Ad una parte introduttiva, segue una raccolta di architetture già realizzate, ma anche alcune in fase di costruzione o di progettazione che cercano di mostrare il processo di genesi progettuale e materiale dell'opera di Kuma, caratterizzata dalla ricerca compositiva applicata ai materiali naturali come elementi costitutivi della fabbrica. Il volume accompagnerà la mostra dedicata all'illustre architetto giapponese che si terrà nell'autunno prossimo al Palazzo della Ragione di Padova

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for the stunning shingle church in Kärsämäki as well as the Finnish Pavilion at Venice Bienniale 2014. Finnish office Lassila Hirvilammi changed their name to OOPEAA (Office for Peripheral Architecture) in May 2014. The story of OOPEAA began in a rural field in Finland, where the now-iconic Kärsämäki Shingle Church was built by hand by hundreds of volunteers over half a decade. In the years that followed, OOPEAA has established itself as one of Finland's leading architecture firms, one that is distinguished by a sensitivity to material and craftmanship. In text, photographs and drawings, this book traces the office's development into one of the most innovative architectural practices in the Nordic region today
