Japanese architect Kengo Kuma is the only architect to have made it to Time magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People this year. He has been recognised for his impact on sustainable architecture and creating structures that respect the surrounding context by blending into them rather than standing out.
One of the most prolific international architects, Mr Kuma’s forthcoming project in Singapore is the highly-anticipated Founder’s Memorial project, a tribute to the Lion City’s founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. Recently, his timber stadium that was built for the Tokyo Olympics was in the news when the games were hosted in the Japanese capital city.
