I’m taking a CEE class: Accessing Architecture Through Drawing because I like drawing + strolling around outside + my bff is studying architecture.
I’ve recently found my favorite architect: Kengo Kuma. I like his focus of fitting architecture into the surrounding environment. And his style is very Japanese (East Asian), and I like this cultural aspect of his works.
Just to give you an idea of his style:
Certainly not as impressive as Tadao Ando’s works such as the Church of Light, but I appreciate the modesty + sereneness in Kengo Kuma’s works.
My second fav: Frank Gehry.
I guess he’s not my favorite only because I’m a little biased towards the East Asian aesthetics. I remember hearing that he did a lot of designs for shopping centers, so many of his works such as the Disney Concert Hall have structures similar to shopping centers. Anyways, he’s really imaginative and talented!
