Tadao Ando

print catalog, digital publication, website

I chose the topic of Japanese architect Tadao Ando’s work in response to the open-ended prompt of ‘minimalism.’ The essence of Ando’s work embodies this concept. I was struck by his incredible use of light and shadow, and his ability to design structures that are simultaneously traditional and modern. My goal with this project was to keep the design quiet and simple in order to allow his work to speak for itself, but to reinforce the physical qualities of his work with a concrete grid system and touches like printing on vellum and die-cutting windows to play with light. I referenced the balance between the traditional and the modern through typographic choices and the binding of the catalog, a traditional Japanese stab-bind executed with an industrial material.
