Complementing The Japanese House exhibition in the Art Gallery, we invited some of the architects whose work is on display to learn more about their practice and some of the most influential Japanese architecture.
Kazuyo Sejima established Kazuyo Sejima & Associates in 1987 and SANAA with Ryue Nishizawa in 1995. She has received numerous awards for both her independent work and collaborations with Nishizawa, including the Golden Lion at the Venice Architecture Biennale (2004) and the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2010). In 2010, Sejima became the first woman to take on the directorship of the Venice Architecture Biennale.
In her Architecture on Stage talk, Sejima revisits domestic projects that have sought to negotiate a relationship between the individual and Japan’s advanced information society. She explores the principles behind key houses such as House in Plum Grove (2003) which you can see in The Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945.
In association with the Architecture Foundation.
