Ando : Modern Minimalism with a Japanese Touch, Paperback Book

Ando : Modern Minimalism with a Japanese Touch Paperback

Edited by Peter Gossel

Part of the Taschen Basic Architecture Series series

Description

Philippe Starck describes him as a "mystic in a country which is no longer mystic." Drew Philip calls his buildings "land art" that "struggle to emerge from the earth." He is the only architect to have won the discipline's four most prestigious prizes: the Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale, and Kyoto Prize.

His name is Tadao Ando, and he is one of the world's greatest living architects.

Combining influences from Japanese tradition with the best of Modernism, Ando has developed a completely unique building aesthetic that makes use of concrete, wood, water, light, space, and nature in a way that has never been witnessed elsewhere in architecture.

This book provides the perfect introduction to Ando's work, including private homes, churches, museums, apartment complexes, and cultural spaces throughout Japan, and in France, Italy, Spain, and the USA.
