6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 290 libraries worldwide
"Japanese architect Tadao Ando is known throughout the world for his exquisite compositions: small, carefully wrought houses; striking museums and cultural facilities. Ando's distinctive palette of materials - concrete, stone, wood, and glass - sets his work apart, as does his thoughtful consideration of the palette of materials provided by nature. Covering works built over the course of more than twenty-five years, Tadao Ando: Light and Water presents the architect's masterful meditations on the physical and metaphysical qualities of existence." "Ando selected for inclusion the thirty-five projects that best embody his belief that the interplay with nature defines architecture and the passage of time molds architecture. All are shown in spectacular, specially commissioned color photography. Among the major recent works are the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Texas; the Komyo-ji Temple in Saijo, Japan; the meditation space for UNESCO in Paris; the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis; and the Armani/Teatro in Milan. Also included are some of Ando's most important and well-known earlier works, including the Church of the Water in Hokkaido, the Church of the Light in Ibaraki, and a series of houses throughout Japan."--BOOK JACKET.

Tadao Ando at Naoshima : art, architecture, nature by Philip Jodidio ( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 251 libraries worldwide
"Tadao Ando at Naoshima: Art, Architecture, Nature showcases the latest work in an on-going process of building by Tadao Ando at the acclaimed Naoshima Island Art Complex. Featured here is Ando's recently completed Chichu Art Museum, an underground facility built on the small island in the Inland Sea of Japan. With respect for the landscape and the traditional use of the land as terraced salt fields, Ando was here determined to utterly adapt architecture to the topography, burying much of the complex volume below the ground. He was moved to fully explore the potential of "underground architecture," which imposes its own order and sensibility on space, allowing in only limited light while increasing a sense of depth, fostering ultimately cool tranquility in which one becomes enfolded. On permanent exhibit in the museum, and shown here, is an important body of work by impressionist Claude Monet as well as other major works by contemporary artists Walter De Maria and James Turrell."--BOOK JACKET.

Tadao Ando : Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth by Philip Jodidio ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 184 libraries worldwide
"A self-taught architect, Tadao Ando combines the influences of Japanese traditions with the elegance of modernism. His projects, such as the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, featured here, encourage contemplation and demonstrate a reverence for essential forms. Respected for his powerful, meditative spaces and his sensuous yet refined use of materials - wood, steel, concrete, glass - Ando's work resonates with profound intelligence, unpretentious elegance, and an almost palpable sense of harmony. Directly opposite Louis I. Kahn's masterpiece Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth comprises five pavilions that seem to float on a pool of water. Inside the museum, diffuse and reflected natural light - similar to Kahn's innovations at the Kimbell - bathe the interior and the art in an even glow."--BOOK JACKET.

Tadao Ando : museums by Tadao Andō ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 172 libraries worldwide
"More than thirty years ago Tadao Ando started to establish himself as one of the best designers on the international scene for the rigor and character of his works, and ever since his intense activity has moved tirelessly between private residences and public buildings. Each of Ando's museums has added a small piece to the construction of a cohesive path based on a strong and clear use of geometry, the employment of few materials in the right proportions, the harmony of the spaces, and a relationship with the landscape. From this point of view, his series of museums communicates the Japanese master's design philosophy perfectly. This book has been put together with the architect, who, through an important and exclusive series of study sketches, images, and models, tells us of his works and his way of seeing and conceiving architecture including the construction of the museum. From the early buildings accomplished in Naoshima, Osaka and Oyamazaki, through the Pulitzer Center in Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art in Fort Worth, and the restructuring of Palazzo Grassi in Venice, readers will be guided into the reserved and rigorous world of Tadao Ando, gaining a sense of the "secret" of his project work."--BOOK JACKET.
