Pritzker Prizer-winning architect Tadao Ando — who has worked on the 7132 Hotel in Switzerland and Tom Ford’s ranch in New Mexico – is the subject of a new exhibition at Tokyo’s National Art Center. The exhibition is split into six different areas: “Origins/Houses,” “Light,” “Void Spaces,” “Reading the Site,” “Building Upon What Exists, Creating That Which Does not Exist” and “Nurturing.”

Titled “Tadao Ando: Endeavors,” the exhibition features more than 270 models, sketches and drawings, including a full-scale replica of his “Church of the Light” design. Elsewhere, there is a recreation of his personal workspace and a model of Naoshima, the so-called “art-island” which features prominent work by Ando.

The exhibition is open at the National Art Center until December 18. For more design news, check out a new exhibition in Paris which looks at a selection of COMME des GARÇONS furniture created between 1983 and 1993.
