Each section is well-illustrated with photographs and drawings. However the floor plans are sometimes difficult to read due to the small scale and lack of indices or labels identifying spaces. Text is minimal, with only brief descriptions of projects.
Overall, a nice pictorial survey of an important architect's impressive body of work.
I think all the works are on the book but not the full information about the buildings , so, you won't be able to imagine all the buildings.
For an Architect trying to study about Ando's work is not really good. sometimes there are not good sections or elevations to discover how good or bad the design is. if you want seriously to study Ando's work, this book is not the best one, but still you may enjoy it and get inspired.
Great book. Fascinating architecture.
