KAZUYO SEJIMA + RYUE NISHIZAWA / SANAA: Architecture & Environment

About the Exhibition
TOTO GALLERY·MA is pleased to present the exhibition Architecture & Environment by Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA.

"Architecture & Environment" is a theme that SANAA has been engaged with for many years. They have always been thinking about ways to conceive architecture as a medium that gently connects people's lives with their surroundings while forming a single landscape that encourages lively activities among its occupants. For example, with their emblematic design of the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa (Ishikawa, 2000), they demonstrated a fresh kind of public architecture by opening the building up in all directions to facilitate free interactions while creating rich perambulation spaces. It is for such work that Sejima and Nishizawa have been awarded many accolades, including the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2010).

This exhibition, which will be SANAA's second solo show at TOTO GALLERY·MA, seeks to illuminate how the architects' design philosophy has developed since their first show in 2003. It will offer a precious opportunity for visitors to witness the latest progress in the work of the continually evolving studio.
