Mr. Exposed Concrete, Tadao Ando

Tadao Ando, Tokyo

This narrow and round corridor is a part of a building designed by Tadao Ando, a noted architect worldwide. Early works of Tadao Ando feature the simple and elegant texture of exposed concrete. He is also a maestro, skillfully handling the light and shadow. Plus, he has a perfectly sense of scales in his works: the sizes of corridors, rooms, entrances.... They are not too small nor big.

He successfully designs elegant architecture, skillfully controlling the texture, light, shadow and scale.

Great picture, I just love it!

While I'm here I thought I'd let you know that I have moved my site on to Wordpad, unfortunately that means it's time to update those links again.......sorry

I would feel a bit claustrophobic in that coridor.:)
