9783823845386: Tadao Ando (Archipockets)

Tadao Ando was born in Osaka, Japan in 1941. Ando did not receive any formal architectural schooling. Instead, he trained himself by reading and traveling extensively through Africa, Europe, and the United States. In 1970 he established Tadao Ando Architect & Associates. Ando rejects the rampant consumerism visible within much of today's architecture. He responds both sensitively and critically to the chaotic Japanese urban environment, but maintains a connection to the landscape. His concrete and glass buildings reflect the modern progress underway in both Japan and the world. In opposition to traditional Japanese architecture, Ando creates spaces of enclosure rather than openness. He uses walls to establish a human zone and to counter the monotony of commercial architecture. On the exterior, the walls deflect the surrounding urban chaos, while on the interior they enclose a private space.
