The Architecture of Tadao Ando Photographing the architecture of Tadao Ando was an impressive experience about beauty, simplicity and strong connotation to space. The architect Tadao Ando restored a place near Osaka, which was destroyed by an earthquake in 1995 where thousands of people lost their lives. He created a multifunctional space, a place to commemorate, and a space to celebrate life through art and design. The project is called Awaji Yumebutai. Yumebutai means “Dream Stage”. The complex consists of a conference center, hotel, church, memorial, a place for weddings and events, etc. There are several buildings and structures connected by corridors and public squares. The ground is made of scallop shells and covered with water. Walking through the interior and exterior areas is magnificent. It is an emotional, spiritual, and spatial experience.
