Re: Your article on Tadao Ando and the Pritzker Prize:
Fumihiko Maki was also a winner.

Hi Claire,

Sasuga!!, I am impressed to your selection. Yes that museum is great.
I really want to visite there. Really good architecture has a kind of power. It makes me heal actually.

I love to see Kuma kengo too.

modern Japanese is good too

I was sad to hear of the passing of Kenzo Tange. Another star has fallen...

Sometimes I am happy to live in Chicago because there are many examples of great architecture, but there are no works of Kenzo Tange or Tadao Ando. (If you want to see some of the works of Mies Van der Rohe, IM Pei, Rem Koolhaas, Helmut Jahn, Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, then come visit Chicago!)

Whenever I visit my sister in Dallas, I always want to go to the New Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth, designed by Tadeo Ando. There is a http://www.themodern.org/new_modern.html> nice picture and more information here.

However, I don't think my nieces would like it (they are 3 and 5). I think I'll have to wait until they're a little older and in school all day.


Hi Huang
Singapore's Indoor Stadium. Oh really, when I visit Singapore, I will visit there. Thank you for infomation.

Hi Smina
You build you house by youself??? What? Really? How?
Tell me, it is very interesting.

I think when you build your house, it would be super nice. I want to see it really.


I read about his demise in the local papers yesterday. He was the architect for Singapore's Indoor Stadium.


I am sorryfor Kenzo Tange.

I am glad for this article of yours , because I was thinking just yesterday about askig you if you know where I could find resources for how to build a traditional japanise house. (in english, swedish or romanian :-) )
I will build myself a little house and I would like it to be as much as possible in the japanise style.
all the best


Atelier Rats are AWESOME!! I have seen their designs quite frequently in various design magazines..and I have seen Future Systems too..of course they always show the same buildings, which I dont think is fair because they really have been more prolific than that. (yeah I know it's a showcase portfolio thing..but hey I like to see the scope of their work, not just the highly dynamic pieces) When I design my house I would like one of those two companies to draw up the plans. I really dont think I would want anyone else....now if I could just win that darned lottery! ®rz
