Description

This work presents a survey of the extensive series of museums designed and built by Tadao Ando in Japan, Europe and the USA. Ever since Tadao Ando started to establish himself more than thirty years ago as one of the best designers on the international scene for the rigour and character of his works, his intense activity has moved tirelessly between private residences and public buildings. Each of these works has added a small piece to the construction of a cohesive path based on a strong and clear use of geometry, the employment of few materials in the right proportions, the harmony of the spaces and a strong sense of the relationship with the landscape. From this point of view, the series of museums designed by Tadao Ando tells of the Japanese master's design philosophy perfectly.show more
