Transcript of a presentation on TADAO ANDO BY:- Ankush Kumar


Considered a patron of Minimalism but doesn’t compromises with the design
Pure space enveloped in concrete rectangular forms - pure space and simple form
The column has become merely a symbol that addresses culture and history
Extensive use of Concrete and glass in the pure form
Interior of the building are the form itself, ridicules the idea of masking it
Simplified, rectilinear forms and bare, naked concrete walls that define the spaces within
Style- element of Light, Water through concrete and glass

Style and Philosophy:

Sezione longitudinale A-A

A wall independent, L-shaped around the rear of the building and on one side of the pond.
The chapel is entered from the back and along the path approaching the wall.
