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. His name is Tadao Ando and he is one of the 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 in architecture. His 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. This book created at the height of Ando’s illustrious career and thoroughly updated for this new 2014 edition presents his complete works to date.
