"Material Immaterial: The New Work of Kengo Kuma presents more than thirty of the architect's recent works, including high-profile commissions such as the Suntory Museum in Tokyo and the Ondo Civic Center in Kure; the exquisite Lotus House in Zushi; large-scale urban developments like Sanlitun Village South in Beijing; as well as tea pavilions and installations that have exhibited in the United States, England, Italy, South Korea, China, Germany, and France, many of them never before published.
The book also includes an extended essay on the evolution of the architect s work, from the founding of Kengo Kuma and Associates in 1990 to the present." --Dexigner

"He [Kengo Kuma] will focus on one material on a particular project, but his explorations veer across the spectrum, from traditional woods and stones to innovative envelopes with different plastics. Botond Bognar, who authors the new monograph on Kuma with his son Balázs Bognár, uses materials as a way to group the architect's projects, finding strains within his work that arise from focusing on a particular material." --Archidose

"This is the second monograph on Kuma by Bognar in a stretch of only five years, a testament to the many fine buildings created in a short period of time." --Archidose

"Traces the evolution of Kengo Kuma, one of Japan's most promising emerging architects of the past decade, five years after his first published monograph by the same author. Where once Kuma sought to make buildings `disappear into the landscape', today he uses materiality in a more concerted effort to distinguish them. This is an inspiring look at an architect who appears to have been less influenced by 1990s austerity than many of his peers. Thirty-three projects in all are featured: from houses and public building to art installations." --Architecture Bulletin

"In this heavily illustrated, oversized volume (8.75x11), Bognar (architecture, U. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) describes 30 recent projects by the celebrated Japanese architect. Kuma seeks to dissolve walls and meld his buildings into their surroundings, using screens of bamboo poles, zigzag-cut stone, wood, and glass, and other effects. The projects include residential and commercial works, including the Asahi Broadcasting Corporation headquarters, the Food and Agriculture Museum in Tokyo, and other restaurants, museums, hotels, spas, and retail groupings. Each project is presented with plans, sections, and multiple interior and exterior views with a short description by Bognar, who also contributes an introductory essay on Kuma's theory and methods. The volume includes a selected bibliography and biographical notes and lists of awards. It is not indexed." --Book News, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  • TRANSPARENT ARCHITECTURE
    GILBERT, GORDON
    First used in the 15th century, the word transparent has origins in the Medieval Latin – transparere, meaning to show through. It’s original Latin derivation is trans + parere, meaning to show oneself. The projects in this book point to an architecture that seemingly suggests a multiplicity of qualities. Paradoxically, it is also an architecture that reveals itself and its own...

Esa definición se aplica en la filosofía del estudio de arquitectura y su nombre lo revela: Pragma debe su nombre a la palabra griega que significa "hecho", "acción". A ese impulso debe su arquitectura. La suya es una visión que busca...
