Tadao Ando is one of the most accomplished architects working today; his buildings balance the heft of concrete with the weightlessness of light. The 1995 recipient of the Pritzker Prize, Ando adopts the modernist innovations of Louis Sullivan and Le Corbusier and pairs them with elements from his Japanese heritage to create spare, highly geometric buildings. His structures combine straightforward materials with nature and ambient light, often featuring entire walls of glass. Erected in 1989, Ando’s Church of the Light in Ibaraki, Japan, typifies his approach: the building is a concrete cube and a cruciform-shaped aperture emits natural light at the altar, suggesting divinity in a humble, minimalist form. Ando runs his own firm in Osaka and has completed projects worldwide, including the Clark Art Institute in Massachusetts, Naoshima Contemporary Art Museum in Japan, and Casa Wabi Foundation in Oaxaca, Mexico.
