Tadao Ando

The Colours of Light

The result of a ten-year collaboration between the internationally renowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and the leading English photographer Richard Pare – during which Pare built up a portfolio of 200 images – this book provides a unique view of Ando’s work, exploring the atmosphere, light and shade of his spaces. Working without the aid of artificial effects, Pare distils the essence of each building.

‘An outstanding presentation of arguably the most significant body of work of the last 20 years.’
