Haiku - The Architectural Work of Todao Ando

Line, light and space. Japanese architect Todao Ando creates room to breathe.

It would be hard to remain stressed or busy in one of Ando's clean, open spaces. Like a Haiku poem his buildings celebrate the beauty of simplicity through modernist form and the use of light. So, no more words. Just take the time to stop reflect on these restful spaces and be refreshed and inspired again.
