Onishi Town Hall, Onishi Japan – SANAA

During three spring seasons between 2006 and 2008, Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa taught at the School of Architecture at Princeton. The SANAA Studios explored Japan’s contemporary society as a context for architecture and considered its particular perspective on space, the personal and the public realm.
