This publication is certanly beautiful. Short but exquisit intro by Kuma-san and a more in-depth analysis by Frampton. It is a bit disappointing that not all Kuma's work are featured, like the Fuan Teahouse, CCCWall, Tsunagu and few recent shops and other inspiring installations.
The book, despite this gaps, remains an invaluable reference.

Amazing Monograph on Kengo Kuma. The preface by Kuma is amazing and really makes you understand all of the focus of his work and concept.
A beautiful book with a great selection of projects. It's a shame thought that some of Kuma's more recent and more caracteristic projects didn't make it to the book.
Anyway, for an admirer of Kengo Kuma, this is the perfect book that makes you wish there were a book with all is projects. That being impossible, this is a great choice.
