SANAA’s goal was to make the architecture of the River become part of the landscape without drawing attention to itself, demonstrating a high degree of sensitivity to the landscape and its topography. Structurally, the building of glass, concrete, steel, and wood is in essence a single long roof, which seems to float above the surface of the ground as it twists and turns across the landscape.

SANAA combines the creative talents of Pritzker Prize winning architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa and their staff in Tokyo, Japan. In the words of the Pritzker jury, “The buildings by Sejima and Nishizawa seem deceptively simple. The architects hold a vision of a building as a seamless whole, where the physical presence retreats and forms a sensuous background for people, objects, activities, and landscapes.”

In early 2010, Grace Farms Foundation selected SANAA, a Tokyo-based architectural firm, to execute its vision for a place for people to experience nature, encounter the arts, pursue justice, foster community, and explore faith. The Foundation chose SANAA for this project because their vision of architecture is closely aligned with the purposes of Grace Farms.

SANAA’s River building and barns were the first U.S. structures designed by the principal architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa after they were awarded the Pritzker Prize.
