Tadao Ando at Naoshima : art, architecture, nature by Philip Jodidio( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket

Church on the Water, Church of the Light : Tadao Ando by Philip Drew( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These two small and exquisite churches by Tadao Ando - one rural and 'open', the other urban and 'enclosed' - complement each other perfectly and together provide an insight into Ando's creation of sacred space. The Church on the Water occupies an idyllic pastoral site and consists of two squares, one large, one small, that overlap and are arranged facing a man-made pool. The Church of the Light is built in a quiet residential area of Osaka. Here Ando explores the spiritual force of the effects of sunlight on raw concrete. Slits cut in the form of a cross perforate the chapel's front wall; when lit up by the morning sun they create what Ando describes as a 'cross of light'. With these two churches, Ando provides a synthesis of opposites, creating spaces that attain a purity and calm through powerful architectonic forms."--BOOK JACKET
The contemporary tea house : Japan's top architects redefine a tradition by Arata Isozaki( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tea house is one of Japan's most original and significant architectural forms - a small, simple space for the tea ceremony that traditionally requires a hearth, straw-mat flooring, and a low entrance. It has been called the spiritual fountainhead of modern Japanese architecture." "The Contemporary Tea House features twenty works that reveal how world-renowned Japanese architects are redefining this highly formalized and tradition-bound form using materials as disparate as charcoal, plastic, and titanium." "Directed at both the general reader and the specialist, this visually stunning book explores the works of five masters of modern Japanese architecture. The informative text is illuminated with photographs, and numerous diagrams and sketches."--Jacket

Ando : complete works by Philip Jodidio( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philippe Starck describes him as a 'mystic in a country that is no longer mystic'. Phiilip 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 world's 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 existed elsewhere in architecture. Ando has designed award-winning private homes, churches, museums, apartment complexes, and cultural spaces throughout Japan, and in France, Italy, Spain, and the USA. This book, created at the height of Ando's career, brings together his complete works to date"--Bookjacket
Tadao Ando : Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth by Philip Jodidio( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket
