Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa

This elegant publication marks Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation’s presentation of SANAA’s work in Sydney.

Yuko Hasegawa met with Kazuyko Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa to discuss the foundations and development of their innovative architectural practice. Notions of transperency, sensory and spatial experiences, interior and exterior lanscapes, and the gentle separations brought about by curvature – all evident in the SCAF installation – are considered. By explaining their approach to the design of institutions such as the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Japan and the Rolex Learning Center in Switzerland, Sejima and Nishizawa guide us in our interpretation of their smaller-scale Sydney project.
