Provides a good and wide ranging overview of Ando's work. Outlines his development and key works, placing them in a context of his and the general development of architecture from the 70s onwards Photographs, sketches and drawings of the projects give a good sense of the innovative quality of Ando's work.

The book is of high quality. Excellent for your personal collection or as a gift. It is good as it includes photos, architect's sketches and Autocad drawings of each project.

3.0 out of 5 stars Complete works but not really detailed 24 Jun. 2014
By J A S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This version of the Book is medium size, not the bigger one.
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.
4.0 out of 5 stars Ando 27 Nov. 2013
By Eugene L. Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The volume is very extensive and well done except for some of the drawings. First they are too small to be very useful, and second they are drawn with a very light colored ink. If this was done by intent then that was a bad decision. If it wasn't intentional than I got a defective book. Still a nice book that would be great with better drawings.
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice 5 Jun. 2013

Good book, but not as beg as I expected. I have Meier and Hadid Complete works that are a great books and are at least time and a half this one. I expected Ando book would match the others since its the same concept and the same publisher.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ando's book by Philip Jodidio 10 Nov. 2012
By Hora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An interesting coffee table book that serves as a visual compilation of Ando's most important projects to date. The volume covers a wide array of his work, spanning 35 years of his practice.

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.
