What do we look at? The wall or the cross, which is not really there?
Former professional boxer, Tadao Ando, though self-taught, is acknowledged as one of the most important Japanese architects and one of the greatest representatives of the minimalist current in contemporary architecture - the only architect ever to have won the discipline's four most prestigious prizes: the Pritzker, Carlsberg, Praemium Imperiale, and Kyoto Prize.
Framed in aesthetic design with a powerful contemporary layout and creating an engaging visual but informative narrative, this book will take you on a fascinating photo-journey to one of Ando's world-known signature architectural works - Church of the Light.
Almost 30 people from all over the world who visited the place in different years took part in crafting this book by sharing their photo-memories of the Church to help you to reveal the spiritual secret of Ando's "light".
