Live talk with Kengo Kuma | Virtual Design Festival x CAMP | Dezeen

Today Virtual Design Festival is streaming a live talk by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, as part of our collaboration with CAMP, Prague’s centre for architecture and planning.

Introducing our collaboration with CAMP, which will be sharing lectures from its Urban Talks series with Virtual Design festival today, is this lecture by Kuma live from his office in Tokyo.

Kuma, one of Japan’s leading architects, won the competition to design the stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics that have now been postponed due to coronavirus.

He recently created Ace Hotel’s first hotel in Japan, in a building that was previously the Kyoto Central Telephone Company.

The architect also completed his first building in Australia this year, a six-storey civic centre in Sydney that, like many of Kuma’s designs, features light-coloured wood in dynamic configurations.
