A little about Azuma House
Tadao Ando placed this simple, narrow concrete rectangular residence in a dense, urban core of Osaka row-houses. It is extreme in it’s simplicty in contrast to the neighboring houses which follow a more the traditional japanise style. Even so, using a modern tool set, Ando has incorporated the traditional mind set and connection to nature through the central open courtyard.
- Site area: 57.3 sq meters
- Floor area: 64.7 sq meters
- Planning: 1/1975-8/1975
- Construction: 10/1975-2/1976
In its simple but rich spatial composition, in its expression of enclosure, and in the way light gives character to daily-life spaces, this house encapsulates an image of my architecture.Tadao Ando
