World-renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma was recently in Sydney to present a keynote address for the SCCI Architecture Hub (12-22 October). It was a moment that offered him an opportunity to do what he loves most: inspire architecture students.
Piggybacking on his keynote address at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and intimate lunches and talks at Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas (SCCI) with Australian architects and Japanese colleagues, Kengo heads to Canberra where he will work with architecture students at the University of Canberra to activate Aspen Island, in Lake Burley Griffin, with an ephemeral architecture project for DESIGN Canberra.
