As his first UK building nears completion, acclaimed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma will speak about architecture and identity, exploring the relationship between place, building tradition and landscape. Opening in September, The V&A Dundee is set to redefine the identity of the city and build upon its status as a UNESCO City of Design. Kuma will discuss his work in cities around the world, including London and Tokyo, where his National Stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is under construction.
