Ando

“Ando employs concrete to stree the taut homogeneity of its surface rather than its weight. Mass is transformed into a means of reflecting light and dematerializing space.” -Liquid Stone

“The way I employ concrete it lacks sculpturesque solidity and weight. It serves to produce light, homogeneous surfaces. I treat concrete as a cool , inorganic material with a concealed background of strength.  My intent is not to express the nature of the material itself, but to employ it to establish the single intent of the space.” -Tadao Ando, Liquid Stone
