CALENDAR LISTINGS
October 2002

September 27, 2003-April 27, 2003
Tadao Ando, Architect
Tadao Ando, the winner of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1995 and the recipient of the 2002 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal, is one of the most celebrated architects working today. Masterfully reconciling the minimalist vocabulary of modern Western architecture and the sensitivity of Japanese building and garden design, Ando's work relates edifice to landscape in a profoundly spiritual manner. This exhibition will survey Ando's work of the past 30 years, and will include his recent American museum commissions in St. Louis, Fort Worth, and Philadelphia. The exhibition originated at the Saint Louis Art Museum.
