Holly cow! New York City finally has a project from the master Tadao Ando . Maybe one day I will go back and visit that crazy city and surely I will visit Tadao’s work. Here’s a link to the project’s website.
Here’s how they describe the project in the website:
“Designed by Pritzker Prize–winning Japanese architect Tadao Ando, 152 Elizabeth Street offers seven one-of-a-kind residences in Manhattan’s Nolita neighborhood. The distinctive building—Ando’s first ground-up condominium outside of Asia—embodies his timeless approach to architecture. Carefully composed, light-filled interiors by Michael Gabellini create a serene, understated living environment. Through refined craftsmanship, a pared-down aesthetic, and masterful use of materials, 152 Elizabeth Street establishes a sense of openness, comfort, and calm. An urban sanctuary, 152 Elizabeth Street provides both connection to and refuge from the city around it.”
I have only seen his intervention for the VITRA foundation at Basel, Switzerland. It was not only a pleasure but a master class on architecture. And the New York Times article just confirms that his craftsmanship is still there.
