dc.description.abstract Kengo Kuma is one of the most famous exponents of the Japanese architects. He is among the greatest interpreters of context, which has made skilful use of the building material expressive of its key architectural visions. Kuma taking inspiration from the nature of the materials to develop and define the shape, the construction technique and the expressive potential of his architecture, in a study in which design and construction, material and form are closely related to each other. The natural elements that contribute to shaping his projects are always intimately linked to the landscape from which they are born and where they are located, but at the same time have a strong identity of its own, characterized by the simplicity of the solutions space and the symbolic dialogue between form, light and nature. In the introduction, the author illustrates the architect's vision, which he narrated, when he builds or when using a material, visions that give shape and substance to his creations. In the second part, which presents the projects carried out from 1995 to 2005 by means of information cards with text, drawings and photographic material, the works are not sorted in chronological or typological, but are classified into groups designated by the building material used (stone, glass, plastic, earth, wood and bamboo), generating element and the starting point of all his thought and design practice. en_US
