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, 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.

    Word is that the architects have asked that the entire audience be white in order to avoid unsightly postmodern clashes with their wardrobe and their projects.

    O escritório SANAA tem uma arquitetura diferente. O simples, o puro é privilegiado, mostrando que a arquitetura não é somente a ostentação e o jogo de elementos que, em alguns casos, empobrecem um determinado edifício. Creio que seja por este motivo que, Kazuyo Sejima e Ryue Nishizawa sejam tão premiados mundo afora.
