The summer exhibition at the Danish Architecture Centre features the worldrenowned and Pritzker Architecture Prize awarded Japanese architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, and their design studio SANAA, accompanied by photographic works by the artist Walter Niedermayr. The design universe of the Japanese design studio, SANAA – poetic and full of sur-prises – creates extraordinary spatial experiences. It has made Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa front runners on the international architectural scene. SANAA is major league architecture and its buildings are to be found all over the world. The exhibition at the Danish Architecture Centre gives a poetic and aesthetic insight to SANAA’s architectural universe of constantly expanding and exploring forms, sub-tle interplay of light and materials and relational tensions between physical space and man.

Works by Walter Niedermayr
The exhibition is accompanied by works by world famous photographer Walter Niedermayr, who has an ongoing artistic dialogue with SANAA. With their astonishing lightness, whiteness and focus on the selective interpretation, Niedermayr’s works produce new perspectives on SANAA’s buildings. The exhibition features brand new works of the Rolex Learning Center.

Rolex Learning Center SANAA’s most recent building in Europe is the branch new and highly praised ‘Rolex Learning Center’ in Lausanne, Switzerland, an extension to the Technical Faculty, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. The exhibition will present the new ‘Rolex Learning Center’ to the public, while offering insights into other prominent projects from SANAA and the poetic architectural idiom that is their trademark.

Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa work independently as architects, but run the SANAA design studio together, and together they have won several awards, recently the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize and earlier the ‘Golden Lion’ at the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2004. SANAA’s projects include: The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2007) and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan (2004), and boutiques for Christian Dior and Prada. Sejima designed the ‘House in a Plum Grove’, Tokyo (2003), one of the most interesting attempts to rethink the organization and sequence of rooms in a house.

The exhibition is developed by SANAA in collaboration with Danish Architecture Centre. The exhibition is part of DAC’s ongoing series; World Architecture.

The exhibition is supported by Realdania.

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
