Kazuyo Sejima
Kazuyo Sejima is known for designs with clean modernist elements such as slick, clean, and shiny surfaces made of glass, marble, and metals. She also uses squares and cubes, which can be found in her designs in various degrees. Large windows allow natural light to shine into a space and to create a natural transition between the interior and exterior of a building.
Kazuyo Sejima, along with Ryue Nishizawa, has completed several projects in Germany, Switzerland, France, the Netherlands, the US, and Spain. Many of their designs, like the Rolex Learning Center at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, the New Museum in New York City as well as the Glass Pavilion for the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio, the US, involve glass and public open space to interact with the world around the architecture. Such design elements can be found abundantly in their designs.
