As soon as I arrived in Japan I asked my photographer friend Kumanosuke to take me to SAYAMAIKE HISTORICAL MUSEUM designed by Tadao Ando – check more here.
I couldn’t be more happy to be surrounded by Tadao Ando architecture again.
This year I decided to leave my ultimate love Japan and move back to Australia, Sydney. My reasons to leave Japan I have explained here .
Tadao Ando and his world
Born in Osaka in 1941, a Japanese self-taught architect who spent his early years as a professional boxer and truck driver, until he changed course, taught himself architecture and eventually became one of the Great Fathers of contemporary architecture. He does not even have an architecture degree. But who really cares? He said:
“It wasn’t that I had any great dream of being an architect. I just wanted to make things. Whether it was furniture, painting, interior design, or architecture. I just wanted to create something.” – Tadao Ando
