Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, partners at the firm SANAA for 15 years, are only the third pair to have been jointly awarded the Pritzker Prize. The prize is awarded to "a living architect whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture."

Sejima and Nishizawa have an enduring reputation for designing deceptively simplistic, almost sculptural buildings that demand an element of viewer interaction.

Based in Tokyo, SANAA's Japanese schemes include the O-Museum in Nagano, the Christian Dior Building in Omotesando and the Naoshima Ferry Terminal, as well as a number of acclaimed international projects including the Zollverein School of Management and Design in Essen, Germany and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.
