The Tadao touch: Ando's complete works to date New format - new price! ""In architecture, there is a part that is the result of logical reasoning and a part that is created through the senses. There is always a point where they clash. I don't think architecture can be created without that collision."" -Tadao Ando Philippe Starck describes him as a ""mystic in a country which is no longer mystic."" Philip Drew 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.

Fine. Köln, 2010; ril., pp. 600, ill. Philippe Starck lo descrive come un mistico in un mondo che non crede più a niente. Philip Drew definisce i suoi edifici come una sorta di land art che lotta per emergere dalla terra stessa. È l'unico architetto ad aver vinto i quattro premi più importanti del suo settore: il Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale e il Kyoto Prize. Combinando le influenze della tradizione giapponese con il Modernismo, Ando ha sviluppato un'estetica unica che si avvale di cemento, legno, acqua, luce, spazio e natura in una maniera assolutamente originale. Ando ha progettato abitazioni private, chiese, musei, e spazi culturali meritori di premi e riconoscimenti in tutto il mondo. Questo libro raccoglie tutto il suo lavoro fino ad oggi.
