Quote of Note | Paolo Baratta

“[Kazuyo] Sejima is really the architect who refuses to conceive architecture as a way of representing the power of somebody, or the money of somebody else, or the ambitions of the client. She instead comes back to an idea of architecture where functions, relations, and the division of space are what matters.”

-Biennale di Venezia chairman Paolo Baratta on SANAA’s Kazuyo Sejima, who directed the 12th Venice Architecture Biennale
