Tadao Ando Part One

February 5, 1986 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Tadao Ando talks about some residential projects he has completed in Japan. He is dissatisfied with both the disregard for the occupant inherent in modernism, and the superficial elements of postmodernism. He points out several unique cultural aspects of Japanese residences, namely their size, and the Japanese desire for courtyards. Ando’s desire is to blend his designs into nature, or at least attempt to introduce natural qualities in his designs, while working with modern materials such as concrete and glass.
