Kengo Kuma and Associates, Javier Villar Ruiz

Observing materials, inventing details, composing architecture

Starting from the small scale of the details allows us to create full scale architecture that responds to the inherent logic of the materials in use. Many of the projects we develop start from the intuitive choice of a material. Understanding a material gives us hints on how to best detail it; assembly those details into construction elements resulting in a particular architecture. We like to think that our works do not come from our own design will; but that indeed their logic belonged already to their materials themselves.
