Sunka Raku


“SUNKA RAKU – Evanescent Joy”

Roberto Behar has changed his vocation several times in his life: he has been a harpsichord player, a publicist and a falcon trainer. His professions have been born out of impulses he follows obsessively, affectionately and stubbornly. His tempestuous childhood could be the origin of his search and the creation of a peaceful haven with some Japanese tea houses on a piece of land in the Ajusco in Mexico City, following the most meticulous rules for construction.
