World-renowned architect Kengo Kuma received an ACC Fellowship in 1985 to serve as a visiting scholar at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture and Planning. His work takes inspiration from nature and natural materials in a modernistic approach that explores the recovery and revitalization of the traditional aesthetics of Japanese architecture. The New National Stadium in Tokyo, is on view in Japan Society’s exhibition, Made in Tokyo: Architecture and Living, 1964/2020. Kuma will share his recent projects and dynamic vision beyond 2020 through his holistic approach in creating architecture in harmony with the environment towards a new quality of living.
