Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Architecture, which acquires tranquillity and balance thanks to geometric order, obtains dynamism thanks to natural phenomena and human movements."

Architect Tadao Ando's statement serves as an introduction to the architecture photographs in this small-format book. Ando designed the Vitra conference pavilion in Well am Rhein.

It's not the first time that Karl Lagerfeld has photographed architecture; the results in this book are truly impressive. It seems very difficult to transform Ando's architectural principles into a photographic form. But Lagerfeld transfers the basic ideas of Ando's architecture into his own photography. On one hand his pictures present us several geometrical forms and details as staircases or doorways. On the other hand we can find photographic views of the whole building and its environment. Lagerfeld has found a sensitive language showing us the characteristics of Ando's specific architecture.
