SANAA: Works 1998-2008 was a survey exhibition at the New Museum in New York, a museum that was designed by the Japanese architects. SANAA was founded in 1995 by Kazuyo Sejima (born 1956) and Ryue Nishizawa (born 1966). In 2004 they won the Golden Lion of the Venice Architecture Biennale for the most significant work, and in 2010, Sejima and Nishizawa were awarded the Pritzker Prize. Examples of SANAA’s work include the Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne; the Toledo Museum of Art’s Glass Pavilion in Toledo, Ohio; the Serpentine Pavilion in London; the Christian Dior Building in Omotesando in Tokyo; the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa; and the Louvre-Lens Museum in France.
