Product description

A self-taught architect, Tadao Ando combines the influences of Japanese building traditions with the elegance of modernism. His projects encourage contemplation and demonstrate a reverence for essential forms. Respected for his powerful, meditative spaces and his sensual yet refined use of ordinary materials--wood, steel, concrete, glass--Ando's work resonates with profound intelligence, unpretentious elegance, and an almost palpable sense of harmony. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is comprised of five pavilions that seem to float on a pool of water. Inside, diffuse and reflected natural light bathe the interior and the art in an even glow. This book thoroughly and luxuriously documents Ando's most recent masterpiece with glorious new color photography of the building, the reflecting pools, the grand interior spaces, and the galleries.
