3. “I believe that the way people live can be directed a little by architecture.” Is a Japanese architect born on September 13, 1941. Has led a storied life working as a truch driver and boxer prior to settling on the profession of architecture. Despite never having taken formal training in the field. (A self-taught architect) Tadao andoINTRODUCTION TO .Tadao Ando’s constancy of form gives his work merit and timeless appeal. clean line, and sheer simplicity. Ando orchestrates masses and voids The structure is firm, tranquil, and even a bit mysterious. There are no irrelevant ornaments. Avoids direct entry to the interior Creates a kind of hierarchical approach by using paths, pillars, walls and colonnades TADAO ANDO’S ESSENCE OF STYLEINTRODUCTION.

13. CONCEPT AND MATERIAL NARIWA MUSEUM. This work again using reinforced concrete to neutralize the importance of the building and to give elevate the natural landscape. The approach is a bit of a labyrinth, that encourages visitors to notice the attractiveness of the mountain landscape. An artificial pond being the link that provides continuity and fluidity to this design. Using reinforced concrete, the edifice feels made from an authentic material. Ando has shown that the use of concrete allows multiple formal and structural variants.
14. JOINERY Bold interlocking between build units . Usage of pure geometric shapes is easily seen in the design.
15. ENTRY_ NARIWA MUSEUM. Barrier like facade at entry no openingsNo direct entry to interior Access to the museum is via an entrance ramp that leads visitors on a path upward and away from the street and over an artificial pond created in the mountainside.

19. WATER-COURT A water-court is an above-defined courtyard filled with water instead of dry ground. In Nariwa museum courtyard is partially enclosed by a natural slope, by the surrounding landscape close-by and by artificial pond along side surfaces of concrete walls.

21. CHRUCH OF LIGHT. MODERN ARCHITECTURE.
22. The Church of the Light (sometimes called the "Church with Light") is the main chapel of the Ibaraki Church, a member church of the United Church of Christ in Japan. It was built in 1989, in the city of Ibaraki, Osaka Prefecture. This building is one of the most famous designs. In 1999, the main building was extended with the addition of a Sunday School.

23. The Church of the Light is a small structure on the corner of two streets at Ibaraki, a residential neighborhood. It is located 25 km north-northeast of Osaka in the western foothills of the Yodo valley railway corridor. The church has an area of roughly 113 m² (1216 ft²): about the same size as a small house. The church was planned as an add-on to the wooden chapel and minister's house that already existed at the site. The Church of the Light consists of three 5.9m concrete cubes (5.9m wide x 17.7m long x 5.9m high) penetrated by a wall angled at 15°, dividing the cube into the chapel and the entrance area. One indirectly enters the church by slipping between the two volumes, one that contains the Sunday school worship hall. The benches, along with the floor boards, are made of re-purposed scaffolding used in the construction. A cruciform is cut into the concrete behind the altar, and lit during the morning (as it is facing east). CONSTRUCTION AND STRUCTURE. MATERIAL AND GEOMETRY. SITE . Overlapping and Inter locking of
24. The space of the chapel is defined by light, the strong contrast between light and solid. In the chapel light enters from behind the altar from a cross cut in the concrete wall that extends vertically from floor to ceiling and horizontally from wall to wall, aligning perfectly with the joints in the concrete Tadao Ando often uses Zen philosophies when conceptualizing his structures. One theme he expresses in this work is the dual nature of existence. One feature of the interior is its profound emptiness. Many who enter the church say they find it disturbing. The distinct void space and absolute quiet amounts to a sense of serenity. For Ando the idea of 'emptiness' means something different. It is meant to transfer someone into the realm of the spiritual. The emptiness is meant to invade the occupant so there is room for the spiritual to fill them. ARCHITECT OF LIGHT. CONCEPT AND PHILOSOPHY
25. idolization of the reinforced concrete wall. The importance given to walls is a distinct departure from Modernist architecture. They are usually made of 'in-situ' poured in place concrete. Considerable care is taken to see that the walls are as perfect as technique will allow. These walls are thick, solid, massive, and permanent . The main reinforced concrete shell of the Church of the Light is 15 inches thick. "In all my works, light is an important controlling factor," says Ando. "I create enclosed spaces mainly by means of thick concrete walls. The primary reason is to create a place for the individual, a zone for oneself within society. When the external factors of a city's environment require the wall to be without openings, the interior must be especially full and satisfying.“ "At times walls manifest a power that borders on the violent. They have the power to divide space, transfigure place, and create new domains. Walls are the most basic elements of architecture, but they can also be the most enriching." ANTO AND HIS WALLS. ANTO”.
