Tadao Ando, Paperback / softback Book

Tadao Ando Paperback / softback

Edited by Matthew Hunter


The newest volume in our popular Conversations series features Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

One of the most celebrated living architects, Ando is best known for crafting serenely austere structures that fuse Japanese building traditions with Western modernism.

His minimalist masterworks-geometric forms clad in silky-smooth exposed concrete-are suffused with natural light and set in perfect harmony with the landscape.

In these highlights from lectures delivered at the University of Tokyo's Graduate School of Architecture, Ando candidly describes his experiences as a largely self-taught practitioner, tracing his development from an early interest in the traditional building craft of his native Japan through his political awakening in the turbulent 1960s to his current stature as one of the world's foremost architects.

In addition to exploring his aesthetic influences and working process, Ando offers students a road map not only for maintaining professional integrity, but alsofor becoming effective agents of change in the world.
