Past Exhibitions

SEJIMA KAZUYO + NISHIZAWA RYUE SANAA

Feb 1st, 2014 - Mar 30th


Details

Staged as part of Towada Art Center’s fifth-anniversary project, this exhibition showcased SANAA, the architectural duo comprising Nishizawa Ryue and Sejima Kazuyo. Nishizawa explained the exhibition in the following terms: “On display are the tools that architects use for work on a daily basis, which form the most basic language for architectural expression. By making use of these fundamental materials, we hope to show both how architects think, and how imagination develops in an architecturally creative working environment.” The exhibition consisted of forty models, drawings, and videos of buildings̶mainly museums̶from around the world, and proposed ideas for a new age of architecture as well as new relationships between locality and architecture. In addition to SANAA’s projects, the exhibition included personal work by Sejima and Nishizawa, completing the picture of SANAA’s architectural realm.
