Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa founded their Tokyo-based architecture firm SANAA in 1995. The firm is known for an innovative collaborative design process that results in such groundbreaking buildings as the Toledo Museum of Art’s Glass Pavilion in Toldeo, Ohio; the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York; the Serpentine Pavilion in London; and the Rolex Learning Center in Switzerland. In 2010, SANAA was awarded the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize for work that the jury described as “simultaneously delicate and powerful, precise and fluid, ingenious but not overly or overtly clever.”
The lecture will take place at the Art Institute of Chicago on Wednesday, June 29 at 6:30 p.m. Their talk, organized by the museum’s Architecture & Design Society, will be given in the museum’s Rubloff Auditorium. The cost is $15 for the general public, $10 for society members, and $5 for students with a valid ID. For more information, please click here.
