Sejima Kazuyo from SANAA and the spiral exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale

YEAR:

The installation you made for this Biennale di Venezia is a large transparent spiral. Can you explain how it was born? What did you want to communicate?

The theme of this Biennale was Freespace. Since our exhibition was decided to be set in the Arsenale, we did a variety of studies on what we can do. Among them, we decided to create overlapping reflections by winding acrylic in rounds. There are small windows in the Arsenale. Bringing the outside scenery into the inside space with a number of reflections, people looking at the indoor landscape would also mix in these different images. SANAA wanted to display such diverse landscapes at the Arsenale.
