One of the essential Japanese architects and professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Tokyo.
Kuma’s stated goal is to recover Japanese buildings’ traditions and reinterpret these traditions for the present. His projects maintain a keen interest in the manipulation of light with nature through materiality.
His philosophy of architecture is also heavily tinged with his way of designing furniture.
