Tadao Ando’s Architect Photo-Book


What do we look at? The wall or the cross, which is not really there?

Former professional boxer, Tadao Ando, though self-taught, is acknowledged as one of the most important Japanese architects and one of the greatest representatives of the minimalist current in contemporary architecture.

Framed in aesthetic design with a powerful contemporary layout and creating an engaging visual but informative narrative, this book will take you on a fascinating photo-journey to one of Ando’s world-known signature architectural works – Church of the Light.

Light and darkness – what are they? An irreconcilable confrontation or the dual nature of (co)existence? This book will help you to reveal the spiritual secret of Ando’s “light”.

Since college years I had a considerable interest in visual arts and architecture. I really love the completely unique aesthetic of Tadao Ando’s works, its uniquely monumental yet comforting aesthetic that draws as much on the calm restraint of Japanese tradition as the compelling modernist vocabularies of Bauhaus and Le Corbusier.

Initially, I wanted only to write a simple research article, but what began as a hobby is now one of the influencing Twitter blogs and mini-book series on famed architects who changed the way we think about buildings – “Architeg”.
