THE TADAO ANDO WIKIEdit

TadaoAndoPortrait
Tadao Ando (安藤 忠雄 Andō Tadao, born September 13, 1941, in Osaka, Japan) is a Japanese architect who worked as a truck driver and boxer prior to becoming one of the most highly respected architects in the world.

He specializes in exposed cast-in-place concrete and is renowned for an exemplary craftsmanship, which invokes a Japanese sense of materiality, junction and spatial narrative through the pared aesthetics of international modernism.

In 1995, Ando won the Pritzker Architecture Prize, which is considered the highest distinction in the field of architecture.
