Philippe Starck describes him as a “mystic in a country which is no longer mystic.” Philip Drew calls his buildings “land art” that “struggle to emerge from the earth.” He is the only architect to have won the discipline’s four most prestigious prizes: the Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale, and Kyoto Prize. His name is Tadao Ando, and he is one of the greatest living architects.Combining influences from Japanese tradition with the best of Modernism, Ando has developed a completely unique building aesthetic that makes use of concrete, wood, water, light, space, and nature in a way that has never been witnessed in architecture. His designs include award-winning private homes, churches, museums, apartment complexes, and cultural spaces throughout Japan, as well as in France, Italy, Spain, and the United States.

“If I had to pick a favorite TASCHEN book, it would be Tadao Ando's Art Edition. Since there are only 300 of them existing in the world, my runner-up would be anything else by Tadao Ando in the catalogue. I've been an obsessive admirer of Tadao Ando's art and architecture for decades, and the Taschen monographs dedicated to his work are remarkable.”
