A pair of architects from Japan, Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, who call their practice Sanaa, have been awarded the 2010 Pritzker Prize for architecture. Past winners include Luis Barragan, Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Fumihiko Maki, Tadao Ando, Jean Nouvel, Renzo Piano.
Their work is praised for quiet beauty that is achieved through something quite their own, but in tune with other architects who seek to produce more with less. These images from inhabitat.
This is a recent building in New York, a New Museum of Contemporary Art in the Bowery in Manhattan.
And this is O-Museum’s interior in Nagano, Japan.
We will offer them office space and a choice of projects here at the republic of less.
