Kengo Kuma is one of Japan’s leading architects and a key figure in contemporary architectural culture; he runs his practice, whose designs are widely published. From this position, he leads an international office whose projects and work have received widespread recognition and acclaim, establishing him as one of the most influential architects of his generation, renowned for his clarity and unwavering attention to detail.2 One of the key points of his design approach is the relationship between his buildings and their surroundings; Kuma often starts from the idea of establishing a confrontation with the immediate context, often pursuing the idea of a mediated merging with the context itself, a strategy often implemented through the repetition of textures and permeable materials that filter air and light to create a translucent or porous envelope.
