Description

Kengo Kuma's Teahouse is a masterly reinterpretation of a classical Japanese building type. Delivered in August 2007 for the Park of the Frankfurt Museum of Applied Arts (a Richard Meier Building), Kuma's innovative structure in flexible, semi-transparent, 'breathing' Tenara-Membrane - inflated by means of a pneumatic system to a blossom-like form - houses in the interiorthe classical elements for Japanese tea ceremony. Integrated LED technology allows the use of the teahouse at night; the interior can be heated by way of the membrane.

The monograph, including an original text by Kuma himself, gives an in-depth documentation of this lyrical temporary structure an outstanding example of ephemeral architecture, combining poetry and technology - with many unpublished sketches, technical plans andsplendid colour photographs.
