Tadao Ando: Conversations with Students

  • Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press (September 19, 2012)
  • Language: English
  • Paperback: 96 pages
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. Besides exploring his aesthetic influences and working process, Ando offers students a road map to maintain professional integrity and become effective agents of change in the world.
