Tadao Ando References – A Short Film by Hans Georg Esch & Florian Yeh
Tadao Ando is a very divisive architect. I suppose when you are talking about minimalism, you tend to have a small group who rally behind an artist’s work and then those who like to play down the significance of such strict adherence to one’s values. I see Ando as a disciplined practitio
A Timeless Message to Humanity – Finnish Architect Aarno Ruusuvuori
Our book OEN Issue 1 profiled Japanese architect Tadao Ando’s work. I visited each location personally and documented these spaces with just my camera taking notes during or after the visit ...

Langen Foundation by Tadao Ando
There are some fascinating connections between different projects that have made it up on the site, I often look back at older articles in each category and notice little details that link them all together. Strangely enough my taste has stayed quite consistent over the years and, although I know it
Architecture by Alberto Campo Baeza
Today I found some much needed architecture inspiration, it's been a little while and I've been that way inclined for some time. In fact, as I'm not a trained architect myself I often learn things through general research, films, and other informative material on the subject. My bookshelf is stacked

Ceramic Works by Jennifer Lee
Pottery has been quite high on my agenda recently, I've been slowly creeping back in to the workshop so it seems like a great time to go searching around for inspiration. One thing I've found myself doing is looking at my home country for possible independents and creatives that might have the same
Abstract Architectural Details by Photographer Yusheng Liao
Wow, this has been an extremely hard post to construct. I've been scouring through photographer Yusheng Liao's website titled 'Figure and Find' and I had to whittle it down to a summary of photographs which was near on impossible. Over the years he's amassed a substantial amount of photographs in hi
Tadao Ando Photographed by Donata Wenders
I've not talked about a highly acclaimed designer in a while so I thought I'd buck the trend today and bring you something slightly different. As you can imagine I regularly go through phases of inspiration, just like everyone else, so when I came across this brilliant photography matched with a sup
Architectural Photography by Richard Anderson
I've been scouring around the web for a little architecture today, with Andrew Geller from my last post sitting in the back of my mind. I enjoyed putting this piece together so much that I wanted to ensure I found something today that felt like it would present equal measure of ingenuity and design
Architecture and Details by Tadao Ando
I’ve been meaning to write a short article on the brilliant Tadao Ando for a little while now, he’s an amazing architect with a classic eye for form and structure. I’m not sure how I actually came across his works in the first place but I’ve had quite a fascination with materials and the con
