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 detail over one hundred buildings and projects, 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 such major commissions as the Church on the Water, Hokkaido (1988), the Japanese Pavilion for Expo 92 in Seville and the Naoshima Contemporary Art Museum (1992).

An interview with Ando conducted by Hiroshi Maruyama accompanies essays on Ando's architecture by a range of respected international critics including Peter Eisenman, Kenneth Frampton, Tom Heneghan and François Chaslin, together with selected writings by Ando himself.


Francesco Dal Co is Professor of architectural history at the University Institute of Architecture in Venice. In 1991 he was Director of the architecture section of the Venice Biennale.
