Tadao Ando UIA Gold Medal

by ArchitectureWeek

The International Union of Architects (UIA) has announced that the distinguished Japanese architect Tadao Ando will receive the UIA 2005 Gold Medal. This prestigious honor is awarded to living architects for contributions made throughout their careers in service to humanity, society, and the promotion of the art of architecture.

In announcing the award, the UIA jury commented: "His mastery of construction materials — reinforced concrete to which he gives a silky touch, wood which he uses with virtuosity, glass, water, light, — makes him an inspired master of architectural construction and design. The imprint of his expertise and his lyricism may be witnessed in private houses, temples, and museums, as well as in ambitious programs like the renovation of Kobe or vast cultural complexes in the United States."   >>>
