Tadao Ando at Naoshima : art, architecture, nature by Philip Jodidio( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 286 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

Ando : complete works by Philip Jodidio( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 216 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 )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 202 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
