About This Book

The most complete and comprehensive collection of residential projects from the world’s most internationally recognized and renowned architect. Though prolific in civic and commercial work, Tadao Ando first gained recognition for his residential projects, which were constructed solidly of concrete but ingeniously imbued with light and air. This exhaustive study is a complete catalog of all his residential work to date, including two new homes just finished in 2013. This volume features unseen and unpublished works presented through lavish and striking color photographs as well as detailed architectural drawings and plans of over thirty years of Ando’s residential work, from the Sumiyoshi Row House in 1975 to the current houses for global design connoisseurs and art collectors.

About the Author

Philip Jodidio is the author of over forty books, including Tadao Ando at Naoshima and I.M. Pei: Complete Works. Tadao Ando is the only architect to have won all four of the field’s most prestigious awards: the Pritzker Prize, the Carlsberg Architectural Prize, the Praemium Imperiale award, and the Kyoto Prize.

Reviews

  • "This complete catalogue, which includes several unpublished projects, presents his work in 300 pages of refined, elegant prose and lavish color photos and architectural drawings- giving readers a sense of Ando’s 30 years of rigor and discipline. A petite volume, this book is destined for the shelves of Ando’s vast legion of architectural devotees, as well as fans of design futurists.” ~Identity Magazine

    “Don’t miss this stellar architecture release.” ~Architectural Digest
