TADAO ANDO by Philip Jodidio, Taschen
One of the most iconic Japanese architects, multi winner practitioner and a self -taught designer, Tadao Ando does not need further introductions. Deeply influenced by the pioneers of modernism, Ando managed to stay true to the traditional aesthetics of his country. Moreover, his approach to architecture and landscape was uniquely categorized as “critical regionalism”.
In this book by Taschen found in this #bookcase we have an overview of his career through his built projects.
“Without the spirit, modernist architecture cannot fully exist. Since there is often a mismatch between the logic and the spirit of Modernism, I use architecture to reconcile the two.”
