Showcasing Kengo Kuma’s Architectural Artistry

Travel By

Japanese architect Kengo Kuma recently constructed this amoeba-shaped art gallery to accompany a shopping mall that his firm built near Taihu Lake in China. Kuma used Taihu stone for the gallery’s facade because of how its porous composition would interact with light—as well as its cultural significance in Taoism. Kuma’s most recent project is a capstone on a career RealClearLife is highlighting below.
