Tadao Ando: Houses
$115.00 (as of July 23, 2017, 8:40 am)
This is probably the most complete collection of residential projects by internationally recognized Japanese architect Tadao Ando.
Even though Ando has been acclaimed for his civic and commercial work, such as churches and museums, the truth is he first appeared in the international architecture scene thanks to his residential projects which made up most of his initial career.
Ando’s houses are known for being built almost entirely with reinforce concrete, yet still being masterfully imbued with light and air.
This exhaustive study is a complete catalog of all his residential work to date, including two new homes just finished in 2013. This volume features unseen and unpublished works presented through lavish and striking color photographs as well as detailed architectural drawings and plans of over thirty years of Ando’s residential work, from the Sumiyoshi Row House in 1975 to the current houses for global design connoisseurs and art collectors.
