Product description

The world-famous Japanese architect Tadao Ando (born 1941) designed the Koshino House for the fashion designer Hiroko Koshino and her family in Ashiya, Hyogo, Japan during 1979 – 84.The building has become the symbol of a home made for light. The film reveals the Koshino House as a collection of all the fragments of Ando’s architectonical vocabulary – not forgetting the architect’s connection to the Japanese aesthetic tradition. It also tells the life story of Tadao Ando, a self-educated architect, and about his tendency to solve the mystery of timeless and solid architecture.
