Tadao Ando is one of the best-known and most influential contemporary architects with a minimalistic aesthetic and love of natural materials like glass and concrete - proof that "less is more." This volume features ten houses and examines his approach to these designs.

Viewed as a collection, these houses serve to demonstrate the wide range of Ando's prodigious genius through lavish and striking photographs. Characteristics of his work include large expanses of unadorned architectural concrete walls combined with wooden or stone floors and large windows. He uses simple methods to solve complicated and small spaces, and turns them into spaces with breathtaking landscapes.

Through more than 120 photographs, line drawings, sketches, and plans, this collection presents several unseen and unpublished works, from the Bosco Studio and House facing the Pacific Ocean in Oaxaca, Mexico, in 2014, to his penthouse in Manhattan for a Japanese collector, finished in 2017.
