Ginzan Onsen Fujiya Hotel, Yamagata by Kengo Kuma

Ginzan Onsen Fujiya Hotel, Yamagata by Kengo Kuma

The buildings of Japanese architect Kengo Kuma may sometimes seem radical (his cocoon-shaped tea house, for example), but on closer inspection are thoughtful and humanistic. When Kuma was asked to renovate the four-story Ginzan Onsen Fujiya, a traditional hot spring inn in Yamagata (the Northern part of Honshu), he used traditional forms as his template but rendered them in a modern way.
