Item description for Tadao Ando by Philip Jodidio...

Philippe Starck describes him as a "mystic in a country which is no longer mystic." Drew Philip calls his buildings "land art" that "struggle to emerge from the earth." He is the only architect to have won the discipline's four most prestigious prizes: the Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale, and Kyoto Prize. His name is Tadao Ando, and he is the world's greatest living architect. Combining influences from Japanese tradition with the best of Modernism, Ando has developed a completely unique building aesthetic that makes use of concrete, wood, water, light, space, and nature in a way that has never been witnessed in architecture. Ando has designed award-winning private homes, churches, museums, apartment complexes, and cultural spaces throughout Japan, as well as in France, Italy, Spain, and the USA. This book, created at the height of Ando's illustrious career, presents his complete works to date.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tadao Ando?

Sensibility  Feb 17, 2007
Thanks Taschen, this book is perfect, the size, the case, the cover!!! beautiful picures, plans and text. That is how a archtecture book is done, in years, people will talk about the sensibility in put Ando's work in a book.
The travel begins in the case, with a familiar pattern of Ando's work, the cover, beautifully taken, and the climax of book presentation is the hardcover, with Ando pattern, perect!
Inside, have everything oh Ando's work, the text, the picures and the plans are superb, but the top os te top is the sketches os his works.

Thanks again Taschen..
Awesome photos of Awesome architecture  Jan 29, 2007
A wonderful, large format, book covering all of Ando's significant work into the early 2000's. It is so interesting to see his early work, how clear a path he set for himself in his career and how carefully he has kept on the path.
ando's huge book  Jan 18, 2007
the book is amazing... arrived in great condition and amazingly quick... the book was much bigger than what i had in mind though... huge and heavy...
Great monograph for your collection~  Jan 29, 2005
This is the latest monograph on Tadao Ando and despite its steep price, its sheer size alone can justify its value. Although the title states "complete works," the monograph focuses on select projects from the mid-70's to the present (there is however, a list of his complete works in the back with single b/w photos in an index format). Although many of the projects that are featured here can be found in other Ando monographs, the extra large photographs of his projects reveal a new sense of space to projects that we are already familiar with. In addition, this monograph also features preliminary sketches of projects and some photos that have not been published before. New projects that you won't be able to find in his other monographs include the 4x4 house, Ground Zero Project, etc. A great book to have in your collection and so far, the grandest of all of Ando's publications.
