This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the opening of the new visitor center at the Clark Art Institute, designed by Pritzker Prize recipient Tadao Ando (b. 1941). Noted architectural photographer Richard Pare captures the building’s indoor and outdoor spaces—including reflecting pools, galleries, and courtyards—in more than 60 gorgeous images. The accompanying essay offers an architectural critic’s perspective on the building and discusses the most important facets of Ando’s stunning design, including the structure’s harmonious relationship to the Clark’s existing buildings and the surrounding Berkshire scenery. Documenting for the first time this new addition to the Clark’s bucolic campus, this gem of a book is essential for fans of both Ando and the Clark.
Michael Webb is the author of more than twenty-five books on architecture and design. Richard Pare is an architectural photographer and was the founding curator of photographs at the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
