Tadao Ando (b.1941) is Japan's leading architect and a designer, with a dazzling international reputation. This complete catalogue of Ando's work examines in close detail more than 100 buildings and projects, all illustrated by drawings, sketches, plans and other material from the architect's own studio. Francesco Dal Co introduces this exhaustive survey, which ranges from the smallest of Ando's private houses from the 1970s to major commissions like the Church on the Water in Hokkaido (1988), the Japanese Pavilion for Expo 92 in Seville and the Naoshima Contemporary Art Museum (1992). A revealing interview with Ando, conducted by Hiroshi Maruyama, accompanies a series of essays on Ando's architecture by a range of respected international critics including Peter Eisenman, Kenneth Frampton, Tom Heneghan and Francois Chaslin, together with selected writings by Ando himself.
