New arts documentary on Tadao Ando launches today on iTunes
Available today on iTunes, the documentary takes us from the architect’s studio in Japan, to the construction of Casa Wabi on the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, Mexico.


LONDON.- Directed by Fernanda Romandía, Just Meet is an intimate portrait of Japanese architect Tadao Ando narrated in his own voice. Available today on iTunes, the documentary takes us from the architect’s studio in Japan, to the construction of Casa Wabi on the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, Mexico. As he discusses boxing, the arts and his enduring passion for architecture, we see how his work comes to life.

Designed by Ando, Fundación Casa Wabi is a non-profit, civil organisation that aims to promote collaboration and social commitment through art. Created in 2014 by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi, the foundation gets its name from wabi-sabi, a Japanese concept which presents a vision of the world focused on the acceptance of the ephemeral and the imperfect.

Tadao Ando (b.1941 Osaka, Japan) is a self-taught architect who founded Tadao Ando Architectural & Associates in Osaka in 1969. Characteristics of his work include large expanses of unadorned architectural concrete walls combined with wooden or stone floors and large windows. Active natural elements, like sun, rain and wind are a distinctive inclusion to his style. Notable awards include: The Pritzker Architecture Prize (1995), the Praemium Imperiale (1996), the Kyoto Prize and the AIA Gold Medal from the American Institute of Architects (2002), the Order of Culture from the Emperor of Japan (2010), Commander of the Order of Art and Letters, France (2013) and the Isamu Noguchi Award (2016).

Bosco Sodi (b.1970 Mexico City, Mexico) is known for his use of raw, natural materials to create large-scale textured paintings and objects. Sodi has discovered an emotive power within the essential simplicity of his materials and the vivid pigments he sources. Focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work, Sodi seeks to transcend conceptual barriers.
