KENGO KUMA

Code: KENGO KUMA


Since Alberni Street in Vancouver strives to create a new high-rise experience by introducing a soft and intimate idiom particular to Japanese space, the designer of this extraordinary grand piano thought of how the piano could evoke the same feelings. By layering sheets of hinoki wood - a spiritual material in Japan used for building temples - and by carving the piano in a similar manner as the tower, this instrument looks light, textured, and warm - its hallowed formations implying an almost geological, timeless character.
