Famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, designer of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics’ National Stadium, offers some relief as creator of the Portland Japanese Garden’s new 3.4-acre Cultural Village, set to open this April. Already celebrated as perhaps the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan, the Oregon tourist destination’s $33.5 million expansion represents Kuma’s first public commission in the United States.

I love this kind of architecture. Something that is large and airy. That is a whopping price to pay though so I would imagine they look even better in person! I love the trees that surround the buildings. Looks like something right out of a fairy tale.
