Bringing our XXL-sized tribute to a smaller, more convenient format, this collection spans the architect’s entire career—including new projects like the Shanghai Poly Grand Theater and the Roberto Garza Sada Center in Monterrey, Mexico—and profiles each structure through photographs and architectural drawings.

Discover the unique aesthetic of Tadao Ando, the only architect ever to have won the discipline’s four most prestigious prizes: the Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale, and Kyoto Prize. This collection spans the breadth of Ando’s entire career, including such stunning new projects as the Shanghai Poly Grand Theater and the Roberto Garza Sada Center in Monterrey, Mexico. Each project is profiled through photographs and architectural drawings that explore Ando’s unprecedented use of concrete, wood, water, light, space, and natural forms. Featuring designs from award-winning private homes, churches, museums, and apartment complexes to cultural spaces throughout Japan, South Korea, France, Italy, Germany, Mexico, and the USA, this compact edition brings you up close and personal with a Modernist master.
