Bringing together the works of Tadao Ando from 1975 until the present day is Taschen’s new challenge for this book, published at the pinnacle of the Japanese architect’s prestigious career: “a mystic in a country that has lost its mysticism”, in the words of Philippe Starck, and the only one in the world to have won the four most prestigious prizes in his discipline: the Pritzker, the Carlsberg, the Praemium Imperiale and the Kyoto.


Considered to be one of the best living architects today, Ando combines influences from Japanese tradition with the best of the Modern Movement, developing a unique aesthetic based on concrete, timber, water, light, space and nature and one that led Philip Drew to describe his buildings as “land art that struggles to emerge from the earth”. His career encompasses hugely varying projects, from private dwellings to blocks of flats to churches, museums and cultural spaces built all over Japan as well as in France, Italy, Spain and the United States.
