Kengo KUMA at the University of California, Berkeley

Esteemed Japanese architect Kengo KUMA will speak at the University of California Berkeley in the Wheeler Hall Auditorium on Tuesday, October 1 at 6:30 pm.

Kengo KUMA’s architecture draws both on ancient Japanese traditions and today’s international and innovative technologies. He’ll use modest materials like paper and straw in small countryside villages or experimental silicon skins in the city. Either way, it is important to him that his architecture is sensual: it delights the eye and invites our touch. All of this may be out of step with what most architects are doing today—but perhaps that is exactly what makes him such an exciting architect.

Sponsored by MUJI and by the University of California’s Department of Architecture and Center for Japanese Studies.
