Seijo Apartments, Tokyo – Kazuyo Sejima

“Here is a sense of belonging and, at the same time, comfortable intimacy created by very special nuances: the delicate quasi-pink bricks covering the outside of the complex and reflecting light inside the apartments like matt mirrors; the large glazed openings looking out onto the other houses without affording views of the interiors; the minute interstitial gardens meandering around the townhouses’ template like natural embroidery. It is a fractal whole, almost a horizontal tower, with a uniqueness composed of many diversities, just like humanity and its billions of individuals.” – Kazuyo Sejima, Seijoville – Stevano Casciani for Domus
