Inspirational Japanese Designer- Tadao Ando

After our in class presentation on Japanese Architecture there were some designers who really inspired me. Going first in my list is Tadoa Ando. Ando has a strong background in Japanese culture. Japanese religion and style of life strongly influenced his architecture and design. His designs are mostly simple. In order to maintain the concept of simplicity Ando uses concrete providing a sense of cleanliness & weightiness at the same time.
