ISLAND, CITY, VILLAGE, RIVER – Studio Kazuyo Sejima
Edited by Anna Gulińska and Indrė Umbrasaitė, Studio Sejima and the Institute of Architecture
ISLAND, CITY, VILLAGE, RIVER is a visual archive of the selected projects developed over a four-year period at the Studio Kazuyo Sejima, Institute of Architecture, University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
Kazuyo Sejima, co-founder of SANAA, the Tokyo-based Pritzker Prize winning practice, was head of the studio between 2015 and 2019. In keeping with her conception of architecture, the studio researched the complex relationships between architecture and its context as well as the intricate relationships between body and space. The studio set out to understand the meaning of sustainability, both in culture and society, through all these facets.
During these four intense experimental years, the Studio Sejima was an educational hub and stimulating environment for over ninety students, backed by an engaged academic team, inspiring local and international guests.
