Lotte Department Store's Kengo Kuma Artwork

Lotte Shopping will exhibit an installation from renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma at its department store in southern Seoul. The artwork, titled SU:M, will be on display at Lotte AVENUEL, for the next five months. Kuma is famous for projects using various natural materials, such as tree branches, stones and fabric, and harmonizing nature and architecture. He was the mastermind behind landmark buildings, such as the Japan National Stadium, the grand stage for the Tokyo Olympics and the Victoria & Albert Museum of London. The department store plans to feature more unique public artworks at its outlet in the near future.
