World-renowned architect Kengo Kuma 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, on which he is working jointly with Taisei Corporation and Azusa Sekkei Co., Ltd., is unveiled in our current 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.

Free admission (pre-registration required). First-come, first-served.
