Tadao Ando in Beverly Hills
2012: TASCHEN Store Beverly Hills welcomed the legendary Tadao Ando for a signing of his books.
About the architect: Philippe Starck defines him as a “mystic in a country which is no longer mystic.” Philip Drew calls his buildings “land art” as they “struggle to emerge from the earth.” His designs have been described as haiku crafted from concrete, water, light, and space. But to Ando, true architecture is not expressed in metaphysics or beauty, but rather through space that embodies physical wisdom.
