Kengo Kuma creates a building using a system of interlocking wooden elements named Cidori after a traditional Japanese game. The design inspires the plan for the building, and the result is a unique work with a bold graphic impact: contemporary architecture brings together different arts.
In Japan’s Museum of Kanayama Castle Ruin, Kengo Kuma weaves a decorative motif of stone to lighten the building’s cement volumes. The geometric composition of the modules embraces the outer walls, inner walls, ceilings and dividing walls to give the architecture an identity of its own.
