Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Article source: v2com

“The building should not be an isolated object. Buildings should be part of the city, part of the environment. I believe that is the goal of architecture in the 21st century.” ~ Kengo Kuma

In Vancouver to discuss his work, Japan’s leading architect, Kengo Kuma, personally revealed plans for his first North American, large-scale residential tower – Alberni by Kuma – proposed for the globally renowned city on Canada’s westcoast. Westbank and Peterson, Canada’s premier developers of luxury, mixed-use projects, have engaged Kengo Kuma, and his firm Kengo Kuma and Associates (KKAA) to design the 43-storey tower near the entrance to Vancouver’s famed Stanley Park. The proposed tower is part of a small collective of internationally influenced designs in the city, under the direction of Westbank and Peterson.
