EVENING TALK: Join celebrated Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, whose first British building will be V&A at Dundee, an international centre for design at the heart of Dundee’s revitalised waterfront, as he discusses his approach to architecture and how a new relationship is being formed between people and place.

Kuma established the now prolific Kengo Kuma & Associates in 1990. Among his major works are the Great Bamboo Wall (2002, Beijing, China), Nezu Museum (2009, Tokyo), Yusuhara Marche and Wooden Bridge Museum (2010). A number of large projects are ongoing, with arts centres in Besancon and Marseille completed during 2013 and work on V&A at Dundee due to begin later this year.

Kengo Kuma & Associates are also one of seven international practices featured in Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined at the Royal Academy of Arts, until 6 April 2014.
