Tadao Ando: Light and Water

Overview

"Japanese architect Tadao Ando is known throughout the world for his exquisite compositions: small, carefully wrought houses; striking museums and cultural facilities.

Overview

"Japanese architect Tadao Ando is known throughout the world for his exquisite compositions: small, carefully wrought houses; striking museums and cultural facilities. Ando's distinctive palette of materials - concrete, stone, wood, and glass - sets his work apart, as does his thoughtful consideration of the palette of materials provided by nature. Covering works built over the course of more than twenty-five years, Tadao Ando: Light and Water presents the architect's masterful meditations on the physical and metaphysical qualities of existence." Ando selected for inclusion the thirty-five projects that best embody his belief that the interplay with nature defines architecture and the passage of time molds architecture. All are shown in spectacular, specially commissioned color photography. Among the major recent works are the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Texas; the Komyo-ji Temple in Saijo, Japan; the meditation space for UNESCO in Paris; the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis; and the Armani/Teatro in Milan. Also included are some of Ando's most important and well-known earlier works, including the Church of the Water in Hokkaido, the Church of the Light in Ibaraki, and a series of houses throughout Japan.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
Matsuoka excels at conveying the sensuality of his reflecting pools, water channels and fountains, as well as the surprisingly varied effects he can achieve within a narrow range of materials -- primarily concrete, but also glass, steel and wood. At once thoroughly cosmopolitan yet at heart consummately Japanese, Ando's universally grounded architecture suggests that globalization need not equate with cultural homogenization. — Martin Filler
