Synopsis

The Tadao touch: Ando’s complete works to date 1975-2014   Philippe Starck describes him as a “mystic in a country which is no longer mystic.” Philip Drew calls his buildings “land art” as they “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.

This thoroughly updated 2014 edition of the Ando monograph celebrates the completely unique aethetic of one of the world's most acclaimed architects. Spanning his entire career, including such stunning new projects as the Hansol Museum in South Korea and Teatrino in Venice, Italy, it explores his unprecedented use of concrete, wood, water, light, space, and natural forms. A testimony to the diversity and global reach of the Ando touch, featured designs include award-winning private homes, churches, museums, apartment complexes, and cultural spaces throughout Japan, as well as in France, Italy, Spain, and the USA.   Text in English, French, and German
