House in Minami Boso / Kiyonobu Nakagame & Associates
Most university campus buildings appear to be hard and cold, with brick, concrete, metal and stone used to create their facades. Kengo Kuma wanted to break away from that and make a building that felt soft and warm, so they decided to use hundreds of thin wood strips to cover a University of Tokyo computing facility. The result is a building with a soft, natural exterior that appears to be alive .
