Architecture Month Heroes – Kazuyo Sejima


In celebration of Architecture month, Encore will be sharing an architectural hero each week. We invite you to enjoy and explore the inspiration behind our work and projects. This week, we are featuring Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA, a favorite of our very own Nakita Reed!

Kezuyo Sejima is a source of inspiration for Nakita.  Her work is often intertwined with nature and evokes a sense of duality – being in a space but always aware of a bigger context. The simplicity of the color palate and the ephemeral quality of her designs are stunning. Additionally, she is one of a handful of women architects making an impact at the international scale.
