Essay by Michael Webb

With principal photography by Richard Pare

This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the opening of the Clark Art Institutes new visitor center, designed by Pritzker Prize recipient Tadao Ando (b. 1941). Noted architectural photographer Richard Pare captures the buildings indoor and outdoor—spaces including reflecting pools, galleries, and courtyards—in more than sixty gorgeous images. The accompanying essay offers an architectural critics perspective on the building and discusses the most important facets of Andos stunning design, including the structures harmonious relationship with the Clarks existing buildings and the surrounding Berkshire scenery. Documenting for the first time this new addition to the Clarks bucolic campus, this gem of a book is essential for fans of both Ando and the Clark.

Michael Webb is the author of more than twenty-five books on architecture and design. Richard Pare is an architectural photographer and was the founding curator of photographs at the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
