Tadao Ando’s Architectural Worldview, Condensed in One Place
The architect Tadao Ando reconstructed a 100-year-old wooden house here in the Honmura district of Naoshima. The exposed concrete of the building helps to breathe new life into the old wooden structure. The old house has been preserved and fused with aspects of modern architecture. Past and present, wood and concrete, light and darkness – this museum houses a condensed taste of Tadao Ando’s architectural philosophy of overlapping conflicting elements.
Within the museum are exhibits of photographs, sketches, models, and more that display Tadao Ando’s work and the history of Naoshima. Even the museum’s structure itself, a reborn building and the space within, is something that visitors can appreciate.
You can also purchase books about Tadao Ando and original goods at the “ANDO MUSEUM Store.” There are even products available signed by Tadao Ando, as well as drawings by him.
Take in the history of Tadao Ando’s activities, as well as the projects he has been involved with at Naoshima.
Visitors can enjoy not only the museum exhibits, but also the building and space itself, given new life by Tadao Ando.
You can purchase books about Tadao Ando as well as original goods at the “ANDO MUSEUM Store.”
