M2 by Kengo Kuma, 1991

I did not know something like that was even possible to think.




A big greek colum stays in the centre as if it is trying to hold and balance something merely patched together. I do not know what was the thinking behind this design but it must be something very elaborated…

Still remain something misterious even today. It is part of the post-modern wave I guess. It is true that Kuma claims started his careeer big shift when he learned more about wood thanks to a japanese artisan, according to the interview contained in the book by Hagenberg, nevertheless I hold at my home an old architectural magazine number called SD, from th 80ies.

The number was addressed to introduce the reader to young architects. Among them Kuma was presented as one of the more interested and involved in the theory…among the others were also mentioned Shigeru Ban and Shin Takamatsu.

Here the official web site from K.Kuma
