AD Classics: Koshino House / Tadao Ando

Tadao Ando’s design for the Koshino House features two parallel rectangular confines. The forms are partially buried into the sloping ground of a national park and become a compositional addition to the landscape. Placed carefully as to not disrupt the pre-existing trees on the site, the structure responds to the adjacent ecosystem while the forms address a more general nature through a playful manipulation of light. More about the Koshino House after the break.
