In collaboration with the MAXXI (National Museum of XXI Century Arts) in Rome, we bring both emerging and well-known international architects to Recanati to share the topics, themes and contexts which define their professional careers. The conferences, titled LightOn
, are held in our Auditorium and at the MAXXI in Rome. Past guests have been Atelier Bow Wow (Tokyo), Snøhetta (Oslo-New York), Sergei Tchoban (Berlin), Smiljan Radic (Santiago de Chile), MVRDV-Winy Maas (Rotterdam), David Adjaye (London-New York) and Sauerbruch Hutton - Louisa Hutton.
On 28 th January 2017, only in Rome, Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA studio will be protagonist of the meeting of #LightOn, series of conferences, edited by iGuzzini and MAXXI.
The architecture of Kazuyo Sejima, Pritzker Prize 2010, is of great impact and appeal, played on transparency, on immateriality. The relationship between the inside and the outside is more than a dialogue, becomes a relationship that can change the space and the behaviour of its inhabitants.
Born in Ibaraki Japan, Kazuyo Sejima received a degree in architecture at the Japan Women's University in 1981. Upon completion of her studies she began working in the office of architect Toyo Ito. In 1987 she opened her own studio in Tokyo and then in 1995, together with Ryue Nishizawa, she founded SANAA. Her own works include House in Plum Grove and Inujima Art House project. SANAA’s main works include the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, the Rolex Learning Center (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne), the Louvre Lens, and Grace Farms.
In 2010 Kazuyo Sejima was appointed director of the Venice Biennale. In the same year, Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of SANAA were the recipients of the Pritzker Architecture Prize.
