SANAA Ryue Nishizawa and Kazuyo Sejima, Photo by Takashi Okamoto, Courtesy of SANAA By Lise Laurberg Based in Tokyo, SANAA designs highly aesthetic and experimental buildings in Japan, Europe and USA. The white, ethereal architecture of SANAA has to many people, become synonymous with contemporary Japanese architecture. SANAA was founded in 1995 by Kazuyo Sejima (born 1956), and Ryue Nishizawa (born 1966), a former employee at Kazuyo Sejima and Associates. SANAAs work includes a large number of successful public buildings, such as the New Museum and the Rolex Learning Center, but the architects also experiment with housing designs to shape and change our daily life, especially in their individual practices (see for example Moriyama House). In spite of their whiteness, the buildings of SANAA are very far from modernist architecture, as the architects continue to incorporate elements of doubt and ambiguity into their works.

University of Southern Denmark Student Housing Winning Proposal / C.F. Møller Architects Inspired by the school’s strong community spirit, C.F. Møller Architects’ first prize winning design for University of Southern Denmark’s student housing project includes 250 student residences that are located in three interconnected 14-storey buildings. This means that the residence has no front or back, but appears attractive from a 360-degree perspective. The project constitutes a link between the 1966 linear university campus and the new Cortex Park, a Research and Knowledge Park designed by C.F. The site’s terrain slopes gently towards an elongated wetland to the south and the residential building becomes part of the science park structure, with the three towers forming a clear landmark on the development’s eastern end. The dorm rooms are located on the outer faces of the three towers, where they all enjoy views of the countryside without overlooking neighboring rooms, due to the building’s turns and twists. Architects: C.F.
