The work of architect Kengo Kuma is one of modulation: of light and shadow, of physical response to materials, of flexibility and specific reactions to specific sites. Winner of the Finnish Spirit of Nature Wood Architecture Award in 2002, he has used wood extensively and innovatively. But he is by no means a "wood" architect exclusively; glass, bamboo, stone, plastic, and metal all enter his hands as mundane entities and emerge with heightened identities. As Kuma himself has noted, "The most interesting architectural possibility is living in contact with materials."
