Forbes: Architect Kengo Kuma’s Authentic Village Beautifies Portland Japanese Garden

“The Cultural Village at the Portland Japanese Garden represents architect Kengo Kuma’s first commission in the United States. Famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, designer of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics’ National Stadium, offers some relief as creator of the Portland Japanese Garden’s new 3.4-acre Cultural Village, set to open this April. Already celebrated as perhaps the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan, the Oregon tourist destination’s $33.5 million expansion represents Kuma’s first public commission in the United States.” – Forbes, January 28, 2017
