The Tohoku earthquake and tsunami shattered coastal cities in Japan in 2011. Kengo Kuma, taking as a point of departure his experiences in the aftermath of that natural disaster, will examine humans’ relationship with nature, questioning the perceived strength of steel and concrete and proposing the reintroduction of wood in design as a fair and practical mediator between humans and nature.
Born in Tokyo, Kuma completed his master’s degree at the University of Tokyo in 1979 and spent time as a visiting scholar at Columbia University before establishing Kengo Kuma & Associates in 1990. Among his many works, recent projects include the Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum (2010), which won the 2011 The Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s Art Encouragement Prize; the Asakusa Culture and Tourism Center (2012), Nagaoka City Hall Aore (2012), and Ginza Kabukiza (2013). Two of his buildings outside Japan are the Besancon Arts and Culture Center and FRAC Marseilles and Aix-en-Provence Conservatory of Music (both 2013). The firm currently has some one hundred projects ongoing in Europe, the U.S., Japan, China, and elsewhere in Asia. One of the most high-profile of these is the new national stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Since 2009, Kuma has been a professor at the Graduate School of Architecture, University of Tokyo. He has also written more than a dozen books-including Anti-Object (2013)-which have been published not only in Japanese but frequently in English, Chinese, and Korean, earning him a readership in many parts of the world. Kuma is an International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, an honorary fellow of the American Institute of Architects, and, as of 2009, an Officier de L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France.

at 1:00:05: 'But it's not a safe area. Many immigrants from Syria and some of those places that are living here. and you remember the terror attack in Paris happened last year and most of the terrorists were living in that area!'' Wouw! Look at these offensive statements! So we unfortunately found out that Kengo Kuma is also a racist as well as being a great architect! Sad!

@Deniz Tatlidede Celik I judged you based on what you said, just like you judged Kengo based on what he said. I know you just as much as you know him. Glad to see you agree with me that yours was an unintellectual and judgemental statement. Cheers!

@Santiago Muros Cortés I watched the video and made a comment about his statement using my freedom of speech (not judging) You however don't know me a bit and insult me! That's it! As I said this is not an intellectual arguement and I do not wish to waste my time with someone who cannot see this simplest difference.

@Deniz Tatlidede Celik And who are you to judge Kengo as being a racist? You see? It’s fun to judge others, not so fun when they do it to you, isn’t it? Hope this serves you as a lesson going forward! Good luck!

The Guardian : Tokyo Olympic stadium . After Hadid’s heady vision, the two new designs might seem a bit bargain-basement. One looks like an undercooked fried egg - a wobbly white roof with a gelatinous, albumeny middle. The other ( Kengo Kuma ) looks like a pile of salad plates cleared away before anyone had finished, with bits of lettuce poking out from between the stack of saucers.

I live near this building ...... Actually way more ambitious than it comes across in design scale ; A LOT of WOOD ..... sadly it lies unused and stands like a ghostly structure due to the postponement of the Olympics ... looking forward to see it come to life !!
