"TADAO ANDO ARCHITECTURE EXHIBITION", a selection of museum projects

An exhibition dedicated to Tadao Ando’s last ten museum projects will be held at the Duvetica Store and Showroom in Milan. The projects, realised between Europe and Japan over a period stretching from the mid-1990s until 2010, will be presented through a large selection of drawings, models, videos and photos.

The exhibition will have a section dedicated to Europe, which will include the Stone Sculpture Museum in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, three projects executed in the Chateau La Coste in Aix-en-Provence, France, as well as the projects Ando carried out in Italy – more specifically, in Venice – for the Palazzo Grassi, Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi and the Punta della Dogana Contemporary Art Centre. The exhibition also features the projects Ando undertook in Naoshima, Japan – Benesse House Museum/Oval, Lee Ufan Museum and Chichu Art Museum – and the Abu Dhabi Maritime Museum he designed in the United Arab Emirates.

Presentation to the press: Thursday 19 April 1.30 – 2.30 pm
