We’ve waited for this moment for a long time: Giorgio Armani inaugurates the first architecture exhibition at Armani/Silos and naturally the star is Tadao Ando, the Japanese architect and Pritzker Prize winner of 1995, who shares such similar taste to Giorgio and also designed the famous Teatro Armani opposite Silos. Its very elegant concrete form is an unmistakable sign of Ando’s talent, which he uses to compose exquisite spaces that play with light from Japan (where, among his other wonders, the Church of the Light stands out) to Venice (Punta della Dogana). The Challenge retraces the architect’s career through his most important works.
The narrative flow – designed by Tadao Ando and his studio in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou – is structured around four main themes: Primitive Forms of Space, An Urban Challenge, The Genesis of Landscape and Dialogues with History. The retrospective includes over 50 projects , illustrated with sketches, original models, video installations, technical drawings, travel notes and photographs taken by Ando himself.
