Title: SANAA (Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa)

Curator: Agustín Pérez Rubio
Assistant Curator and MUSAC Coordinator: Kristine Guzmán

Venue: Galleries 4 and 5, MUSAC
Dates: January 20 - May 1, 2007

MUSAC, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León is pleased to present for the first time in Spain, a major exhibition that traces the artistic trajectory of the Japanese team of architects, SANAA formed by Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa. Winners of the Golden Lion in the 9th Venice Biennial for Architecture for the IVAM Extension Building (Valencia) and for the Kanazawa Museum (Japan), they are one of the most prestigious firms on an international level who, from the start of their careers in Japan up to world-wide recognition at present, have known how to elaborate a whole new dictum of aesthetic as well as engineering proposals, converting their architecture into one of the most solid in the international scene. MUSAC is a project of the Junta de Castilla y León through the Fundación Siglo.

The show to be presented at MUSAC is divided into three areas, located at Galleries 4.1, 4.2 and 5. The public enters through a half-open door through the intermediate Gallery 4.2, where the architects will present a previously unpublished and exclusive project for MUSAC, a 1:2 scale mock-up of a residential project that they are currently undertaking. In this scale model, as well as in the rest of the galleries, all those characteristics that have given the architecture of SANAA international recognition may be appreciated: large panes of transparent glass that permits the permeability between interior and exterior spaces; the elimination of the hierarchy between structure and partition, resulting to sophisticated constructive solutions; the interplay of light, shade, openings and closures and, lastly, the symbiosis between nature and architecture. In the case of the residential prototype that they will show specially at the exhibition, the sinuous curves, the transparency with respect to the surrounding landscape &the very architecture of MUSAC& will allow the visitors to experience the communion of an architecture within another, aside from being able to visualize and imagine the sensations provoked by inhabiting a house designed by these architects.

At Gallery 4.1, three-dimensional projects (scale models) of buildings such as the New Museum of New York (USA), Zollverein School of Design in Essen (Germany), IVAM Extension Building (Spain), 21st Century Museum of Kanazawa (Japan), the Glass Pavilion at the Toledo Museum of Art (USA), among others, will be shown symmetrically. Together with these scale models, furniture design and other objects will be seen, such as the famous - Flower Chair�, - Drop Chair�, - Hanahana Vase� and the Alessi Tea Set. Most of the scale models have a procedural intention, in such a way that the construction process is made patent, and the architectonic details and constructive solutions of each project are specified.
At Gallery 5, there will be a visual itinerary &this time on a two-dimensional plane& of the work of the architects: floor plans, drawings, sketches, photographs and even videos of the projects that trace their careers as individuals and as a team: residential projects in Japan such as the Small House, N House, House in a Plum Grove; buildings such as the Apartment Blocks in Gifu (Japan), Novartis in Basel (Switzerland), Christian Dior Omotesando Building in Tokyo (Japan), Almere Theater (The Netherlands); museums such as the 21st Century Museum in Kanazawa (Japan), O-Museum and N-Museum (Japan) or the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York (USA).

In our country, aside from joining competitions such as the Flamenco City (Jeréz), in which they were short listed, SANAA won the competition for the IVAM Extension Building (Valencia), whose construction is underway at present. Aside from gathering successive monographs that specialized architectural publications have dedicated to them such as El Croquis or AV Magazine, they were winners of the Golden Lion in the 9th Venice Biennial for Architecture for the IVAM Extension Building and for the 21st Century Museum in Kanazawa.

Throughout the temporal development of the show, a monograph will be presented co-edited by ACTAR and MUSAC and will include a review of the housing projects of SANAA and images that will document the exhibition at MUSAC, essays by Agustin Pérez Rubio, Exhibition Curator and Chief Curator of MUSAC, Kristine Guzman, Assistant Curator and General Coordinator of MUSAC, Luis Fernández Galiano, Director of the magazine Arquitectura Viva and Yuko Hasegawa, Chief Curator of the Tokyo Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan.

萊昂地處西班牙西北方,建築文化向來以教堂為城市的表徵。萊昂市政府2002年驟下決定在這個老城裡興建一座屬於21世紀的萊昂當代美術館Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León。由西班牙建築師Mansilla & Tuñón設計,歷經三年興建,耗資三千三百萬歐元,終於2005.年4月落成啟用。MUSAC因為擁有寬廣的腹地,建築量體配置出寬敞的入口廣場。建築以長方折版狀為單元,以相互卡扣拼圖的方式,像棋盤中的棋子填據基地。建築立面五顏六色的印刷玻璃炫麗耀眼,37種不同的顏色源自萊昂市12世紀教堂內的彩繪玻璃《放鷹者El Halconero》經過電腦分析後所得到的顏色。建築師企圖將當代美術館藉由立面色彩,建構與歷史建築的對話關係。建築立面由3351片色彩繽紛的玻璃所組合,輔以500多個鋼桁樑支撐架構而成。中間的主建築高6層,兩側建築高3層。展示空間高低各異,自然光源強弱,藉此可以展示性質各異的藝術品。展覽廳之間相互串聯,內嵌六個高聳的光庭,空間中水平向度的視覺連貫與對話,極為有趣。尤其,當代藝術創作多為多媒體或錄像藝術,當代美術館的空間特質正符合這些需要。展覽空間共約3400平方公尺,配置在建築物的西側,美術館前廣場提供戶外展示所需的彈性空間。毫無疑問的,萊昂當代美術館創造出介於公共與私密,休閒、工作與生活的城市空間。
