Within Milano Arch Week, the week-long event devoted to architecture and the future of cities directed by Stefano Boeri with Politecnico, Triennale and Comune di Milano, Kazuyo Sejima will present a lecture in Politecnico di Milano, on May 24th, h 21.00.
Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa (respectively born in 1956 and 1966) are Japanese architects who, as founding partners of the firm SANAA (Sejima and Nishizawa and Associates), designed structures that are admired for their refined simplicity, spatial fluidity, and thoughtful integration into their surroundings.
Examples of their groundbreaking work include: the Rolex Learning Center in… Lausanne, Switzerland; the Toledo Museum of Art's Glass Pavilion in Toledo, Ohio; the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, NY: the Serpentine Pavilion in London; the Christian Dior Building in Omotesando in Tokyo; and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa. The architects also experiment with housing designs to shape and change our daily life, especially in their individual practices.
They curated the 12th Architecture Biennale in Venice under the title "People Meet in Architecture"
In 2010 they were awarded the Pritzker Prize, becoming only the second partnership to be so honoured.
