Borjana Katic Tadao Ando Monograph
Tadao Ando Monograph is Golden Design Award winner in 2018 - 2019 Print and Published Media Design Award Category.
Tadao Ando Monograph

The monograph is made in close collaboration with Tadao Ando Architect and Associates. The design is inspired by Ando's poetics. Covers of the book are based on his landmark signature – concrete with visible traces of formwork – the recorded process of genesis that becomes a shaping quality and reflects Ando’s spirit by a minimalistic and purified form. Use of tracing paper at the beginning of each chapter gives an impression of airiness and play of light and shadow, which evoke the gradual sensory adaptation provided by the design of the architect.
