Tadao Ando. Complete Works 1975–2012 - Reviews

"If there’s one man responsible for making concrete sexy again it’s this guy."— Independent on Saturday Magazine, London, United Kingdom
"Com fotos, croquis, perspectivas e análisis, Philip Jodidio traça a evoluçao da arquitetura de Tadao Ando. Todos os trabalhos do arquiteto sao relacionados e 58 deles analisados. Completa o livro uma pequenha biografía com detalhes como as demissoes que sofreu pelo temperamento difícil."— Arquitetura e Construcçao, Sao Paulo, Brazil
"È l'architetto autodidatta più famoso al mondo. Ispirandosi a linee geometriche e forme della natura disegna case... musei ma anche negozi: suo quello di Duvetica in via Santo Spirito a Milano, teatro di un'esibizione-tributo durante l'ultimo Salone del Mobile. Segni particolari? Il cemento lisciato, gli interni contemplativi e l'uso magico della luce. Ora la casa editrice TASCHEN rende omaggio all'artista 71enne pubblicando il volume Ando. Complete Works 1975-2012 di Philip Jodidio dove è raccolta la sua opera omnia: dal restauro della Punta della Dogana di Venezia fino al progetto del Maritime Museum di Abu Dhabi."— Marie Claire, Milano, Italy
"His new monograph, Ando: Complete Works 1975-2012 (TASCHEN), thoroughly documents his Zen-like work, including a house and stables in New Mexico, completed in 2008."— Surface Magazine, San Francisco, United States
“At 71, Tadao Ando is considered one of the world’s greatest architects—a prominence underscored by the numerous prizes he has won, including the Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale, Kyoto Prize and the International Union of Architects Gold Medal. This TASCHEN catalogue raisonné covers the autodidact’s career, which, according to Ando, started when he was 15 and first saw a book on the work of Le Corbusier. Hundreds of photographs and drawings detail many of the master’s bold, powerful buildings, showing the play of natural light on stark weightiness of cement, and his unique blend of Japanese culture and elegant Modernism.”— V & M, New York, United States
“This book provides an important record of Ando’s durable ability as an architect while also giving some idea of the difficulties maintaining an appropriate logic and focus as a regional practice becomes vastly popular and international. By laying out the full spectrum in such vivid scale and colour, the updated monograph allows readers to vicariously appreciate Ando’s work and decide on his living legacy for themselves.”— Perspective, Dublin, Ireland
“The new issue of TASCHEN’s monograph on Japanese architect Tadao Ando is an impressive voyage through the world of one of the most popular architects of our time. In a volume as heavy as the concrete slabs used in Ando’s buildings, the book cements the self-taught architect as one of the world’s most influential builders. ANDO - Complete works 1975-2012 is a great work of elegance and seriousness – much like Ando’s buildings themselves.”— Arcspace, Copenhagen, Denmark
