Kengo Kuma has unveiled the prototype for namako, a gigantic sea cucumber, an ephemeral installation that will inaugurate this year’s DESIGN Canberra festival in November.  Produced with the help of students at the Kengo Kuma lab at the University of Tokyo, the actual piece will eventually be a 3-m-high, 12-m-wide installation set in aspen island on lake burley griffin, and is designed to encourage a new kind of interaction between itself, visitors and the surrounding, natural environment.

A collaborative process between architecture students from the University of Canberra and the University of Tokyo, the namako prototype is also created to celebrate Canberra’s 25 anniversary with its sister city Nara in Japan. The prototype of the Kengo Kuma installation will be exhibited at LIXIL gallery, from Thursday 5 July to Tuesday, 25 September of 2018.
