Glass/Wood: Erieta Attali on Kengo Kuma
Publisher: Hatje Cantz Author: Erieta Attali ISBN: 9783775740869 Format: Hardcover, 136pp, 280x245mm
Architect Kengo Kuma and photographer Erieta Attali complement one another perfectly: 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 surrounding world. 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. Details from nature and the intricate connection of interior with exterior space characterise the photographs by Attali. A unique gem of a book, produced to the highest standards.
