Summary "Sanaaѫs housing projects, both finished (House A, S House, House in a Plum Grove, Small House and Moriyama House), and unfinished projects (Flower House, Garden & House, Seijo Apartments, Ichikawa Apartments, House in China and Eda Apartments). SANAA's architecture embraces complexities within deceptively simple appearances. It has many elements that are impossible to understand unless actually أexperiencedؤ. In contrast with modern architecture, SANAA has many aspects that cannot be revealed in أrepresentativeؤ media such as plans, models, and photographs. The أrepresentationsؤ of their architectural works incorporate ambiguity and chronological elements. This characteristic makes Sanaa one of the most innovative offices in the current architectural panorama."--Publisher's website.
