Nature, Ritual, Craft: Kengo Kuma And Portland Japanese Garden. Balazs and Botond Bognar present a public lecture at the Garden to mark the launch of their new book, Kengo Kuma: Portland Japanese Garden (Rizzoli, 2019). Come join us on the Garden’s beautiful Overlook to hear the story of the creation of the Garden’s Cultural Village and the inspiration it took from Japan’s monzen-machi, the small settlements built in front of gates or shrines. The conversation will touch on the Japanese tradition of dwelling in harmony with nature, the Garden’s evolution into a world-renowned Japanese cultural organization, and the bold vision shared across the Pacific that moved the project forward to fruition.

The evening will be a chance to learn firsthand about the elements and features in the Cultural Village and their ancient lineage in Japan, become acquainted with the craftspeople whose work graces the Village, and gain insights into how Kuma and the Garden’s leadership sought to shape the experience of visitors to the Garden for generations to come.

A limited number of copies of Kengo Kuma: Portland Japanese Garden (Rizzoli, 2019) will be available at the event. Advance copies of the book can be ordered from our Gift Shop.

A limited number of student tickets will be available for $5 plus special reduced Garden admission. Student tickets can be purchased by phone only by calling Events at (503) 542-0280 during regular business hours.
