A collection of writings that sets out Kengo Kuma’s theories of architecture, but also a left field critique of where the architecture world finds itself today. This is architectural theory, but written as narrative, full of intriguing vignettes, such as the fact that in Ancient Rome windows were fitted with slices of marble because glass was so expensive. It’s written in a very Japanese form - a series of mini essays that circle around a theme, and is aimed at a highly literate audience. Seventy related essays across four sections set out Kuma’s rejection of the architecture of volume and mass that categorised the 20th-century in favour of a more ad-hoc architecture that can be easily disassembled and, by drawing on tried and tested practices of the past, touches the earth more lightly.
