Art and Mystery in a Public Space

Japanese architect Kengo Kuma has created a magical zen landscape in a plaza at the University of Milan, using stones, fabric, and light.

Suzanne Labarre at Fast Company writes:

"Unveiled during Milan Design Week in April, the installation is a screen of sheer organza curtains strung over a secluded quadrangle like a clothes line, with ceramic tiles and stones seeded below. It was inspired by Kuma's own architectural work for the ceramic company Casalgrande Padana outside Bologna."
