“Tadao Ando”

“Models for buildings such as the iconic concrete Church of Light (1994) outside Osaka are on display in the Centre Pompidou’s exhibition, along with 180 photographs and drawings documenting the Japanese architect’s globe-spanning career. ”

At seventy-seven,Tadao Ando shows no sign of slowing down. The self-taught Japanese architect recently completed his first condominium in New York, named for its location, 152 Elizabeth Street, and is currently transforming a nineteenth-century Parisian stock 
exchange, the Bourse de Commerce, into an art gallery. Models for this latest project and sixty-nine older buildings, such as the iconic concrete Church of Light (1994) outside Osaka, are on display in the Centre Pompidou’s exhibition, along with 180 photographs and drawings documenting Ando’s globe-spanning career.
