Considered to be one of the most authentic Japanese Gardens outside of the Japan, architect Kengo Kuma completed an expansion of the existing garden which first opened in 1967. The expansion includes the addition of three structures by Kuma, which help to increase capacity and opportunity to showcase Japanese culture.
More from the Architects:
The arrangement of the buildings is a response to the Japanese momzenmachi, the gate-front towns which surround traditional shrines and temples. The composition of new buildings emulates japan’s monzenmachi, the gate-front towns that surround sacred shrines and temples.
All three shrines are LEED certified and designed to ensure nature remains at heart of the architectural concept.
