About the Author

Tadao Ando, born in Japan in 1941, is one of the world's foremost contemporary architects. His work is characterised by a commitment to the highest levels of craftsmanship. Ando is known for the subtle use of architectural concrete in combination with natural materials such as wood and stone. Active natural elements such as sun, rain and wind are integral to his compositions. He has designed numerous notable buildings, including Row House in Sumiyoshi, Osaka, 1976 (for which he was awarded the Annual Prize of Architectural Institute of Japan in 1979), Church of the Light, Osaka, 1989, Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, St. Louis, 2001, Armani Teatro, Milan, 2001 and Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 2002. Among the many awards he has received are: Gold Medal of Architecture, Academie d'Architecture (French Academy of Architecture) in 1989, The Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1995, Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects in 2002, and Gold Medal of Union Internationale des Architectes in 2005.
