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 2012 edition, presents his complete works to date.
