Kivi Sotamaa explores a formal vocabulary which reflects his fluid, less bounded, more organic way of working and communicating.

Sotamaa is developing a vocabulary which draws on and expands surrealist ideas into architecture. His work is not just about the technology, the new, the digital - but the continuity with ideas that are integral to modern art.” [New York Times Architecture Critic Herbert Muschamp]
