Poetry in the details
I recently had the pleasure of meeting one of the best living architects, Kengo Kuma. His work has such a simple elegance, using modest materials in unique ways to create spatial poetry. Whether it be using bamboo structurally while it feels like it disappears, stone panels that seem to float, ephemeral structures using blow-up walls with integrated LED lights, or angled stone that provides strength as well as natural ventilation.
Rather than being dependent on technology, his work is a wonderful example of sustainable architecture that implements the best strategies from the past.
