Naturescape project for Urban Stories IN + OUT
Kengo Kuma & Associates
Zona Porta Nuova
Viale della Liberazione – Milano
9/14 aprile dalle 10.00 alle 24.00
The new skyscrapers of Milan’s Porta Nuova Varesine area, and the occasion of the forthcoming edition of the Milan International Furniture Fair, supply the setting for Urban Stories, a series of narratives suspended between design and architecture and recounted by three of the major players on the scene: Michele De Lucchi, Diego Grandi e Kengo Kuma.
NATURESCAPE is the title of the latest project signed by Kengo Kuma with the backing and enthusiasm of Agape, Il Casone and Frassinagodiciotto together with Pratic, Tribù and Vaselli, and with technical support from Davide Groppi. The installation will occupy the ground floor of one of the office buildings designed by American studio KPF – Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects.
Once again Kengo Kuma regales us with a striking installation which cleverly uses combinations of natural elements – stone, plants, water, bamboo, gravel – to create dreamlike images of a Japanese garden, inviting the visitor to experience the elegance, tranquility and wisdom of Zen simplicity evoked by the space.
