Work from Tadao Ando
Tadao Ando，one of the most famouse architect in the Word。
The church is a place where people are praying and are very sacred. In the series of Anto design, he combines natural light and architecture, and I think this is a way of his sacredness. The natural light and shadow can make the building more beautiful and mysterious.
The Church of water is one of the most desirable places for Japanese girls to get married.
In the water of the church, he picked a place in the forest to build, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I think the pool is a key part of this church. As far as I know, the pool is carefully designed to be able to subtle the performance of the existence of the wind,even a little wind can also set off ripples. The glass face of the pool can be opened, so that people can be better to contact with nature (for example, hear the sound of the woods and the wind)
He believes that when greening, water, light and wind are abstracted from the native nature according to human mind, they tend to be divine.
In the building materials, he chose the usual water mixed with concrete and glass as the main material. He used these materials to express his design concept perfectly: the light makes the beautiful become dramatic, wind and rain to add color in the life through their human body . Architecture is a medium that allows people to feel the existence of nature. Ando put the placed of Gods in the light and shadow, which is different from the Roman temple.They like to put the Gods hidden in the darkness which gives the impression of distant.
I like this style of Tadao Ando’design. With nature as the main body, with the building to show the natural. Water Church are very perfect regardless of the use of materials and light, or the choice of address. That why is one of the most desirable places for Japanese girls to get married.
