Kazuyo Sejima, one half of the Pritzker Prize-winning SANAA, is also a member of the 1950s generation, like Kengo Kuma earlier. Sejima has gone well beyond modern ideals by taking a building typology (apartments), usually composed of repetitive elements, and made it totally unique. The project looks like jigsaw puzzle pieces strewn across the site, the gaps between acting as passageways between buildings. In actuality it is one built volume curling about the site and forming four courtyards that are connected on the ground level to act like a street through the project.
