'The buildings, the atmosphere they create and the way they are designed may be a central point of departure for the next venice architecture biennale.(...)
Now that we are in the twenty-first century, we can take this opportunity to step back and assess the spirit of our current times through this international exhibition of architecture, exploring the essence of contemporary architecture and the importance of new relationships when we enter the future.
A significant point of departure could be the concept of boundaries and the adaptation of space.(...) it could be argued that contemporary architecture is an afterthought and perhaps and easing of borders themselves.'
Sejima was appointed as a director of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2010!
The japanese architect is the first woman to direct the biennale, since its inception.
