Kengo Kuma

When the eyes of the world see the Olympic flame in the cauldron of the Japan National Stadium, many will look at the sophisticated branches of its timber trusses and the soothing foliage of its galleries, and recognize the material discipline and love for nature of its author, Kengo Kuma. This issue presents this mastery through six works encompassing a range of scales. In the Art/Culture section, the critic Fulvio Irace goes through the career of two great masters: Gio Ponti and Aldo Rossi. The magazine’s dossier looks at Sacred Spaces through an introductory article and four examples.
