Based around an interview with Tadao Ando, this book explores the influence of the Buddhist concept of nothingness on Andoa€™s Christian architecture, and sheds new light on the cultural significance of the buildings of one of the worlda€™s leading contemporary architects. Specifically, this book situates Andoa€™s churches, particularly his world-renowned Church of the Light (1989), within the legacy of nothingness expounded by Kitaro Nishida (1870-1945), the father of the Kyoto Philosophical School. Linking Andoa€™s Christian architecture with a philosophy originating in Mahayana Buddhism illuminates the relationship between the two religious systems, as well as tying Andoa€™s architecture to the influence of Nishida on post-war Japanese art and culture.Ando had assistants help in the vibrating process with manual rams on the day the concrete was poured in order to ... grids based on the width ofthe shuttering boards (about ninety centimeters by one hundred and eighty centimeters).
