Kazuyo Sejima en Gifu

Albert Ferré, Tomoko Sakamoto

Located in Gifu, sits a building that constitutes the first material expression of Kazuyo Sejima’s studies on metropolitan housing. This investigation proceeded from the conclusion that not all subsidized housing needs to be the same. Starting from a generic public housing program, Sejima’s housing block in Gifu departs from convention and occupies the conceptual and physical space created between oppositional design concerns: where a strictly modulated structure confronts a random arrangement of different spaces; between the length of the building and the reduction of its built depth; between inhabitable space and the surrounding landscape; between the individual and the family unit.
