Kazuyo Sejima selected as first Rolex Architecture Mentor

This morning during Vernissage at the Venice Biennale, noted Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima, a Partner in the architectural practice SANAA, was named the first ever architecture mentor for the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Initiative.

The ten-year-old program pairs master artists in the fields of dance, film, literature, music and the arts - and now architecture - with an emerging talent for a year of creative collaboration. In the fall, Sejima will select her protégé, who will join her in Japan at various points over the course of a year to collaborate on 'Home For All'.

The project was created by Sejima and other leading Japanese architects, including Toyo Ito, Riken Yamamoto, Hiroshi Naito and Kengo Kuma, to respond to the housing crisis following the devastation caused by the 2011 tsunami in Japan.
