Tadao & Taschen,
This review is from: Ando: Modern Minimalism with a Japanese Touch (Taschen Basic Architecture Series) (Paperback)
I was aware this wasn't an in-depth book, but it set me racing for information/research after reading this. It's especially inspiring for those first-year/second-year students out there who are keen to explore, or just those who want to know what it takes to become king of the concrete hill.
I went in to a coffee shop to read it from front to back. Of course I left having finished it, but more importantly I felt nourished. It has a healthy amount of text, with some stunning architectural photography throughout. The breadth of typology/topography will send you racing for more of his work outside of this little gem. Tadao Ando is a master of simplicity. This 'Taschen Basic Architecture Series' follows suit.
