Kan Yasuda awarded Architectural Institute of Japan award
Italy-based world-famous sculptor Kan Yasuda (75) received the Architectural Institute of Japan’s Culture Award. Yasuda’s art works of white marble and bronze are on display not only in Japan but in various places worldwide. The sculptor has garnered praise for creating attractive public places. “I am very honoured and happy,” Yasuda said.
This award started in 1986 and Yasuda is only the third sculptor to receive it. The smooth and beautifully streamlined shapes attract people to his works. In the various places where his gently rounded sculptures are installed, children are often seen climbing or lying on them.
The Arte Piazza Kan Yasuda Sculpture Museum in Yasuda’s hometown of Bibai City has indoor and outdoor displays of his works and is highly regarded by the Architectural Institute of Japan for “creating a rare landscape that penetrates the heart.”
