Tadao Ando’s career is presented in its entirety in this handsome volume. The eminent architect established his independent practice in Osaka when he was just 28 years old. Since then, he has realised almost 300 projects, besides dozens of competition or unbuilt/ongoing designs. His realised projects include more than 30 museums in Japan alone, besides many others internationally, and almost 100 houses. Part one focuses on the development and execution of Ando’s personal conception of architecture and signature style, with exemplary projects alongside detailed essays by the architect. Part two presents a comprehensive list of completed projects from 1969 to 2017.
