Review "A self-taught architect, Tadao Ando combines the influences of Japanese traditions with the elegance of modernism. His projects, such as the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, featured here, encourage contemplation and demonstrate a reverence for essential forms. Respected for his powerful, meditative spaces and his sensuous yet refined use of materials - wood, steel, concrete, glass - Ando's work resonates with profound intelligence, unpretentious elegance, and an almost palpable sense of harmony. Directly opposite Louis I. Kahn's masterpiece Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth comprises five pavilions that seem to float on a pool of water. Inside the museum, diffuse and reflected natural light - similar to Kahn's innovations at the Kimbell - bathe the interior and the art in an even glow."--BOOK JACKET
