"I want to create a space that moves people. It doesn’t matter if it is a house, or a museum, or whatever. So, it is somebody sitting on that lawn, just going around and around and feeling really happy. That is something that I’m striving for." - Tadao Ando
Architecture is not only a part of our culture, but it stands as a representation of how we see ourselves and the world. Spend any time studying architecture, and you'll get the sense that it's less of a profession and more of an expression of all your surroundings.
Featuring three superb Taschen publications wrapped in neutral jackets with modern type, this set can be displayed separately or in a stack, the architectural choice is yours. From the neo-futuristic structures of Santiago Calatrava, to the sublime aesthetic of Tadao Ando, and the staggering scope of Renzo Piano, this oversize book set is richly illustrated and informative. Each volume features hundreds of photographs and entries capturing the energy of different cultures and architectural styles.
