A Japanese Constellation: Toyo Ito, SANAA, and Beyond
SANAA hand-sculpted a model of the River building at Grace Farms for MoMA's seminal exhibition, "A Japanese Constellation: Toyo Ito, SANAA, and Beyond," which highlights the global impact and innovation of contemporary architecture from Japan.

Museum visitors studying SANAA’s work "Grace Farms," a 1:200 scale model of the River building featuring a hand-sculpted douglas fir base, which mimics the topography of our 80-acre grounds, and matches the material used by the architects to create curvilinear canopies. © Scott Rudd.
Congratulations to the stellar architects and exhibition organizers: Pedro Gadanho, former Curator of Contemporary Architecture at MoMA, and current Director of the Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology (MAAT) in Lisbon, and Phoebe Springstubb, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design, MoMA!

"SANAA's model of the Grace Farms project in MoMA’s new 'A Japanese Constellation' exhibition shows the project as the culmination of Sejima and Nishizawa’s two decades of musing on how to make architecture disappear into nature."—Sharon Prince, Grace Farms Foundation President
