    A BRIEF HISTORY OF PREFAB

    After the Second World War there was a regular prefabricated housing boom in the United States. Some 70 companies were active in this market segment in the post-war era, ultimately leading to the construction of roughly 200,000 prefabricated houses.

    However, companies such as Vultee, Lustron, and the Spartan Aircraft Company, which offered buildings built on the basis of steel frames or clad in sheet metal, were still not able to survive. — Published 2012.1003

    NAGASAKI ART MUSEUM

    The Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum in Nagasaki, Japan, is one of Kengo Kuma's most successful designs in an urban setting.

    In this project, a small canal with flanking pedestrian promenades runs between two interconnected sections of the complex, bringing a part of the nearby sea, the port area, and the public realm of the city into the domain of the museum. — Published 2009.1014

    TWO GREEN HOUSES

    Fifty-one-year-old Kengo Kuma, among the best-known Japanese architects of his generation, tends to use each of his residential commissions to explore a single building material. In a dense Tokyo neighborhood, for example, he designed the so-called Plastic House. — Published 2006.0517

    HOUSE OF PLASTIC

    The designs of Japanese architect Kengo Kuma critically engage the materiality of architecture in order to challenge its usual meanings, and in so doing, to thwart the emergence of architecture as an object. As he has shown in many of his projects, Kuma is determined to "dissolve" the materials that he uses, or to choose materials that are less substantial, stating, "If materials are thoroughly particlized, they are transient, like rainbows." — Published 2005.0914

    SPIRIT OF WOOD

    The Wood in Culture Association of Finland has announced that it will confer the 2002 "Spirit of Nature" Wood Architecture Award to Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. The award recognizes the achievements of a person or group whose work exemplifies architectural excellence and a progressive and creative use of wood. The association hopes that the award will both increase international respect for wood buildings and building components and improve their quality by fostering traditions and inspiring young architects. — Published 2002.0717
