This large-format volume is the first to document the long-term collaboration of Italian photographer Walter Niedermayr (*1952) and Tokyo architects Kazuyo Sejima (*1956) and Ryue Nishizawa (*1966), who operate under the name SANAA. Niedermayr is especially known around the world for his photographs of pale alpine landscapes, SANAA for the minimalistic, ephemeral effects of their buildings. In each of their disciplines they pursue an artistically abstract approach to investigating architecture and space according to their coexistence, layers, and constructs.
SANAA’s architecture and the photographs of it avoid sensationalism and drama. Rather, they help the viewer develop a sense for the architecture, the essentials of space, and the relativity of the visible.

For a long time its status in the art world was controversial; it has only been recently that photography has begun to be accepted as a full-fledged form of art.
