SANAA Houses

Kazuyo Sejima, Ryue Nishizawa


From conceptual drawings to photos of completed projects, [this is] SANAA’s latest and most up-to-date publication. This book is the first collection of housing projects by SANAA, one of today’s most innovative architectural offices. Presenting SANAA’s housing projects, both finished (including House A, S House, House in a Plum Grove, Small House and Moriyama House) and projects in progress (including Flower House, Garden & House, Seijo Apartments, Ichikawa Apartments, House in China).

SANAA's architecture embraces complexities within deceptively simple appearances. It has many elements that are impossible to understand unless actually “experienced". In contrast with modern architecture, SANAA has many aspects that cannot be revealed in “representative" media such as plans, models, and photographs. The “representations" of their architectural works incorporate ambiguity and chronological elements. This characteristic makes Sanaa one of the most innovative offices in the current architectural panorama.
