Tadao Ando, 1995 Pritzker Prize laureate, is probably the most important and influential Japanese architect working today. He is famed for his spare and rigorous compositions and use of materials, notably concrete. In Ando's architecture the experience of space and nature - sunlight, sky and wind - is one of the main themes. Among his best-known buildings are the Wall House, the Rokko Housing Development, the Mount Rokko Chapel and the Museum of Literature in Himeji. This Studio Paperback covers important recent projects and buildings including the Japan Pavilion in Seville and the Vitra Seminar House in Weil/Basel. The author, Masao Furuyama, has worked closely with Tadao Ando on this book.
