About this title

Synopsis:

Tadao Ando (b 1941) is Japan's leading architect and designer with a dazzling international reputation. He recently won the 1995 Pritzker Architecture Prize for 'consistent and significant contributions to the built environment'. A comprehensive monograph of Ando's work, this book examines over one hundred buildings and projects designed between 1969-94, illustrated by photographs, plans and exquisite sketches.

Review:

Tadao Ando, one-time truck driver and boxer, is a self-taught Japanese architect whose winning of the 1995 Pritzker Prize has given him preeminence among his gifted generation. Ando reinvents Japan's architectural tradition in contemporary terms, using minimalist concrete structures of monumental scale, reminiscent of the Brutalist architecture of America's Louis Kahn. Editor Francesco Dal Co, an Italian architectural historian, has produced an excellent survey of Ando's career to date, along with a critical assessment of his work.
