Review

""IN ARCHITECTURE, THERE IS A PART THAT IS THE RESULT OF LOGICAL REASONING AND A PART THAT IS CREATED THROUGH THE SENSES. THERE IS ALWAYS A POINT WHERE THEY CLASH. DON'T THINK ARCHITECTURE CAN BE CREATED WITHOUT THAT COLLISION.""

16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Heejae Lee on January 29, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is the latest monograph on Tadao Ando and despite its steep price, its sheer size alone can justify its value. Although the title states "complete works," the monograph focuses on select projects from the mid-70's to the present (there is however, a list of his complete works in the back with single b/w photos in an index format). Although many of the projects that are featured here can be found in other Ando monographs, the extra large photographs of his projects reveal a new sense of space to projects that we are already familiar with. In addition, this monograph also features preliminary sketches of projects and some photos that have not been published before. New projects that you won't be able to find in his other monographs include the 4x4 house, Ground Zero Project, etc. A great book to have in your collection and so far, the grandest of all of Ando's publications.

A wonderful, large format, book covering all of Ando's significant work into the early 2000's. It is so interesting to see his early work, how clear a path he set for himself in his career and how carefully he has kept on the path.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Pablo de Assis Baptista on February 16, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Thanks Taschen, this book is perfect, the size, the case, the cover!!! beautiful picures, plans and text. That is how a archtecture book is done, in years, people will talk about the sensibility in put Ando's work in a book.

The travel begins in the case, with a familiar pattern of Ando's work, the cover, beautifully taken, and the climax of book presentation is the hardcover, with Ando pattern, perect!

Inside, have everything oh Ando's work, the text, the picures and the plans are superb, but the top os te top is the sketches os his works.

Thanks again Taschen..
