Kengo Kuma directs the design of the national stadium, which will be the main venue of the 2020 Olympics. He was a born builder of Tsumiki, and played with it on his own all the time in childhood.
He says Tsumiki played a big role in his life, which af fected his career as an architect. Children would love to play with TSUMIKI, and it would develop their creative intelligence.
During tokyo design week 2015, we used this same concept to design the TSUMIKI pavilion - a temporary structure erected in Tokyo’s midtown park. In addition to the pyramidal installation, individual pieces were arranged in a semi-circle, varying in scale from large to small. Overseas Media described TSUMIKI as the Japanese version of popular Danish building blocks Lego.
