Tadao Ando – Mexico

4WH

Love this stunning concrete campus for mexico’s Casa Wabi foundation designed by the Pritzker award winning architect Tadao Ando.

It highlights all the key elements of design that have are synonymous with architects work.Concrete, geometry, light and shadow, a seamless movement through interior and exterior spaces as well as mixing traditional spirit with contemporary essence.I love how the strong stark linear walls are softened by with layers of dried Royal Palm Tree leaves, the sand and the landscape.

“Wabi” is derived from the Japanese wabi sabi, a concept that refers to an aesthetic ideal or way of life that finds beauty in imperfection, impermanence, accident and depth of nature.
