"One of the things we wanted to achieve with this project was to create an intimate relationship between the inside and the outside, giving visitors the feeling of walking under the trees...feeling the green atmosphere of the garden."
Serpentine Gallery Pavillion, London (2009)
"SANAA...promote a similar sense of reverse vertigo—in the concept of falling upwards—through their use of an architectural element that exists above us all—the ceiling. An element that, almost by default, is perceptibly overlooked, aesthetically undervalued and although considered structurally essential it is a visual non-entity."
"For architecture that is simultaneously delicate and powerful, precise and fluid, ingenious but not overly or overtly clever; for the creation of buildings that successfully interact with their contexts and the activities they contain, creating a sense of fullness and experiential richness; for a singular architectural language that springs from a collaborative process that is both unique and inspirational; for their notable completed buildings and the promise of new projects together, Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa are the recipients of the 2010 Pritzker Architecture Prize."
