poster for Early Drawings of Tadao Ando: Autonomy and Dialogue

This event has ended.

A showcase of Ando’s early architectural materials, namely hand-drawn plans and sketches that date from before around 1990. The featured projects include a number of his extant masterpieces in Japan, such as the Row House in Sumiyoshi (’76), the Koshino House (’81), Rokko Housing Ⅰ (’83), Time’s Ⅰ (’84), the Kidosaki House (’86), the Church on the Water (’88), and the Church of the Light (’89). The theme of the exhibition, “Autonomy and Dialogue”, expresses the ideas – or in other words, the basic principles and motives – that drove the early Ando as he sought to create spaces where people could develop personal autonomy by finding and deepening one’s self through engaging in dialogue with things such as the city, nature, light, history, and culture.
