More than 1,500 people have already stopped by the Center for Architecture to see Tsunagu, Connecting to the Architecture of Kengo Kuma, the first Art in the Garden exhibition of 2016. Guest curated by Balazs Bognar, Design Director at Kengo Kuma & Associates, this month-long event — which continues through February 29 — includes project images, new construction drawings, and a never-before-seen wooden model to illustrate world-renown architect Kengo Kuma’s vision for the Garden’s Cultural Crossing expansion.

The multi-sensory exhibition also offers visitors a chance to see, touch, and even smell many of the materials being used in construction. The sudare screens, tatami mats, Port Orford cedar, and Oregon Baker Blue granite on display will eventually be reused as part of Cultural Crossing.

Thank you again to the exhibition’s generous sponsors: The Center for Architecture, Regional Arts & Culture Council, Work for Art, the Autzen Foundation, Hacker, Hoffman Construction Company, Walker Macy, Stephan and Melissa Babson, and PICA.
