Kivi Sotamaa

Kivi Sotamaa is an award winning international designer and architect based in Helsinki and Los Angeles. He explores a formal vocabulary which reflects his fluid, less bounded, more organic way of working and
communicating. In his work there is a resurfacing of ideas that developed
earlier in 20th century by surrealist painters painters, filmmakers,
poets – having to do with the subconcious, having to do with
dreams, water, fluidity, and the dissolution of the boundaries that
reason applies to experience – with which reason tries to categorise
experience. Sotamaa is developing a vocabulary which draws
on and expands surrealist ideas into architecture. His work is not just
about the technology, the new, the digital – but the continuity with
ideas that are integral to modern art? — Herbert Muschamp, Architecture Critic New York Times
