Ando by Masao Furuyama
This Taschen introduction to architect Tadao Ando explores the hybrid of tradition, modernism, and function that allows his buildings to enchant architects, designers, fashion designers and beyond.
Through key projects including private homes, churches, museums, apartment complexes, and cultural spaces it explores a uniquely monumental yet comforting aesthetic that draws as much on the calm restraint of Japanese tradition as the compelling modernist vocabularies of Bauhaus and Le Corbusier.
From the mesmerizing Church of the Light in Osaka to the luminous Punta della Dogana Contemporary Art Centre in Venice, this is a radiant tour through a distinctly contemporary form as much as a timeless appeal of light, elements, and equilibrium.
