The Centre Pompidou is holding a major retrospective of the work of the Japanese architect Tadao Ando, a key figure in contemporary architecture and a previous winner of the prestigious Pritzker prize for architecture.
Revolving around four main themes - the simplicity of space, the urban challenge, project genesis and dialogue with the past - the exhibition takes the visitor through the key principles behind Tadao Ando's creations, such as his use of smooth concrete, the prominence given to simple geometric volumes, the incorporation of natural elements in his spatial arrangements and the importance he ascribes to the intensity of the physical experience generated by his architecture.
Exhibition at the Centre Pompidou from October, 17th 2018 to February, 25th 2019
