Item description for Walter Niedermayr, Kazuyo Sejima & RyueNishizawa (SANAA) by Walter Niedermayr, Kazuyo Sejima, Ryue Nishizawa & Moritz Kung...

This large-format volume is the first to document the long-term collaboration of the Italian photographer Walter Niedermayr with the Tokyo-based architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, who operate under the name SANAA.
Niedermayr is best known around the world for his pale photographs of landscapes and interiors, and SANAA for the understated, ephemeral effects of their buildings.
In each of their disciplines they pursue an artistically abstract approach to investigating architecture and space according to their coexistence, layers, and constructs. Photographs and plans show how the monolithic and the fragmentary, the hermetic and the porous, the amorphous and the solid lead to ever-changing spatial relationships and atmospheres.

Reviews - What do customers think about Walter Niedermayr, Kazuyo Sejima & RyueNishizawa (SANAA)?

Truth or Deception  Sep 4, 2007
This is one of the most pleasant books to look at. This is not really a monograph of SANAA. The purpose of the book is not to cover their projects exhaustively. The drawings are printed in very small scale, and the photos do not try to tell the whole stories either. El Croquis or GA Architect is what you would like to purchase in that case. This book is atmospheric phantasmagoria. Some views are shot twice from slightly different angles and placed side by side... to reveal truth and deception. According to Niedermayr, "...One sees the breaks in the system of perception, but also in the landscape. It is a deception. This is why the main thing is to break away from the nature of the single image..." I do not completely understand what truth means from images yet, but the photos are amazing in this project. It is said that this book is not a true collaboration, meaning that the photographer was not hired by the architects; rather, he followed the firm's works for his own aesthetic reasons. However, they connect like a tally stick. 'Ephemeral' as some people describe SANAA's works is captured more fantastically here. I would grab it while it is still available.
