Tadao Ando could be boasted as one of the Japanese architectural greats, despite the fact that the man had no prior training in architecture. His style, meant to create a haiku (Japanese short poem) effect, that emphasises on nothingness and empty, minimalistic spaces to represent the beauty that is simplicity, emphasises on structures following the natural flow of the landscape. Having commissioned many architectural feats in Japan such as the Benesse House hotel-cum-museum in Naoshima, the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art and the Church of the Light in Osaka, he has won the Pritzker prize in architecture in 1995, considered the highest distinction in architecture. Below are some images of his most monumental works:
