Interplay between architecture and landscape through Tadao Ando' s architecture.

Çeşmeli, Cen
Regardless of the common grounds and shared entities, landscape and architecture have been segregated in theory and professional practice since late 19th century. This longstanding disciplinary division resulted in unhealthy built environment, composed of isolated buildings from their surroundings, which can be healed by an integrated practice of landscape and architecture. Thus, this study seeks to reveal conceptual frameworks that question the false dichotomy between architecture and landscape by analyzing Tadao Ando’s theories and practice. In order to contextualize the relation between architecture and landscape; this study grasps the division of these disciplines from the ideological roots to contemporary situation. Then the roots of Tadao Ando’s architectural vocabulary and philosophy are analyzed to provide a background information on which his interplay between architecture and landscape dwells. As the final output of this study, five conceptual frameworks are proposed to integrate architecture and landscape in varying contexts.
