Kengo Kuma, sustainable architecture isn’t sculpture on a podium but blends into nature and culture

Born in Japan in 1954, Kengo Kuma creates buildings all over the world that integrate seamlessly into the nature and culture that surround them. For example, in Milan, Italy, he designed a temporary installation with great visual and emotional impact for the 2018 Design Week: Breath/ng was developed in the context of the Design in the Age of Experience exhibition by Dassault Systèmes at Superstudio Più. Its aim was to address the issue of atmospheric pollution, inspiring designers from around the world to embrace sustainable architecture. For the project, Kuma used a special fabric capable of neutralising pollution and acting as an air purifier.
