Description

Tadao Ando Conversations with Students

The newest volume in our popular Conversations series features Japanese architect Tadao Ando. One of the most celebrated living architects, Ando is best known for crafting serenely austere structures that fuse Japanese building traditions with Western modernism. His minimalist masterworks—geometric forms clad in silky-smooth exposed concrete—are suffused with natural light and set in perfect harmony with the landscape. In these highlights from lectures delivered at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Architecture, Ando candidly describes his experiences as a largely self-taught practitioner, tracing his development from an early interest in the traditional building craft of his native Japan through his political awakening in the turbulent 1960s to his current stature as one of the world’s foremost architects. In addition to exploring his aesthetic influences and working process, Ando offers students a road map not only for maintaining professional integrity, but also for becoming effective agents of change in the world.

• This is the first of Ando’s writings to be translated into English
• Includes a foreword by Ando written specifically for this publication
• Ando is the only architect to have won the discipline’s four most prestigious prizes: the Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale, and Kyoto Prizes
• Ando’s Tokyo Sky Tree tower, the tallest in the world, is set to open in March 2012
