The Colours of Light is a beautiful, dense little book that showcases English photographer Richard Pare's stunning takes on the respected, influential Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Pare photographed Ando's work over a 10-year period, and with a remarkable consistency has realized the intricacies of Ando's constructed confrontations between architecture and nature. Pare translates this dialogue with great skill in his photographs and easily manages to convey (convert?) the conversations about space, the absence/presence dialectic, that all buildings declaim. In his overview essay at the end of the book, Pare writes: "Space itself is immovable. It has no movement, though all movement is in space. All space is actually static, and potentially dynamic. We conceive space statically, but we experience it dynamically. The space that is rendered in a photograph is a static space of potential movement." His photographs bear out, but overcome, this tension. Tom Heneghan's introduction wonders if Pare's career as a "photographer of architecture rather than an architectural photographer" has enabled him to so keenly grasp the nature of Ando's work. Whatever the reason, this is a remarkable collection. --Mark Thwaite, Amazon.co.uk


'Exquisitely photographed by Richard Pare, the details of Mr Ando's houses, office buildings, meditation spaces and churches haunt the retina.' (The New York Times) 'An outstanding presentation of arguably the most significant body of work of the last 20 years.' (Architects' Journal) 'This beguiling and vivacious book allows you to tune into Ando's work right away. In this book, every page raises your level of consciousness and I cannot say how much pleasure it gave.' (Architectural Review) 'This book is a superb example of a monograph that is more than simply a catalog of buildings. Richard Pare's photographs beautifully capture the abstraction, the sublime simplicity, the materiality, and the quality of time (lines) in Ando's work. The jury found this book simply irrestible.' (Jury of the American Institute of Architects)

A good architectural photography book 17. März 2005
Von ArchiZona - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The value of this book largely depends on how familiar you are with Ando's work. For example, if you have read articles about his Water Temple from architectural magazines, it is really nice to zoom in and take a close look at several details shown in this book. On the other hand, if you don't know Water Temple project, it will be hard for you to catpure the overall structure of this incredible building from this book. Simply put, this book focuses more on photography and details rather than overall structure. You need to study these projects in order to appreciate the details. Of course, the pictures are really nice.
Richard Pare has a great process for taking architectural photos.. 8. Februar 2015

I thought that ando was a genius via this book. But when i checked out other books of his work, it was not that interesting. So i come to conclude that I liked the way Pare shoot Ando's work & the editor who put together this book.

Ando may be a genius but i find his work dull compared to herzog & de meuron, UN Studio, Mercanooo, BIG, Jun Aoki for LVMH, kengo Kuma ..
wish someone or Ando actually described how he got his cement to be silky smooth..

But Richard PARE & the editior is the REAL star of this book. Made Ando's work more magical than it is..

Beautiful little book 8. November 2001

Beautiful little portfolio showcasing some of Tadao Ando's best known work. Richard Pare's photographs are excellent. The book's design is also very elegant in its minimalism. A must have.

A book to savor for a lifetime integrating the best of architecture with the best of photography; it's zen in its layout and what the photographer captures of this master of architecture is something to behold.
excellent little book on Tadeo Ando 14. Juli 2010

I became interested in Tadeo Ando's architecture when I visited Venice to go to the Biennale. This little book is a gem and there are other more expanded versions available.
