Kengo Kuma (*1954) and Erieta Attali (*1966) complement one another perfectly in terms of their artistic statement: both of them focus on the inclusion of the landscape. It is not the architecture as such that plays the primary role but the way it communicates with the outside, the surrounding world. Details from nature and the intricate connection of interior with exterior space characterize the photographs by the first-class photographer Erieta Attali. In his unique works, Kengo Kuma combines Japanese traditions in architecture with those of Modern architecture. His architecture constitutes a bridge where the individual and nature meet. Kuma became famous in the West for his sensitive extension to a mid-century icon in New Canaan, Connecticut, which this exquisite monograph insightfully discusses and portrays.ERIETA ATTALI (*1966, Tel Aviv) is a New York and Paris based architecture and landscape photographer. She has a Ph.D. from the School of Architecture & Design, RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.Her architectural work expands from Europe to Americas and from Asia to Australia. Attali is the co-author of the Glass Wood | Erieta Attali on Kengo Kuma, author of the Periphery. An Archeology of Light and co-author of Marc Mimram: Structure | Light Landscapes of Gravity Through the Lens of Erieta Attali
