Tadao Ando received the Nobel Prize for Architecture and is self-taught. He is the architect of silence. He specializes in concrete and light, using the “functionalist” approach of Le Corbusier. Like him, Ando disagrees with immediately building under economic and social pressure, as it creates a “mind-numbing landscape”. He builds spaces where the inhabitant can live a new experience in symbiosis with nature.

The exhibition will present the architect’s history and the perspectives he has opened through models, sketches, drawings, and videos.

Tadao Ando was chosen along with 3 other architects to transform the stock exchange into a museum that will soon present the Pinault Foundation collections. Th best part is that the opening of this future museum is a 10-minute walk from the Relais du Louvre.
