Containing essays translated into both English and German, Sunken Courts offers a different look at the recognizable work of Tadao Ando by examining his projects that explore the subterranean. Ando's architecture is almost reliant on a relationship between the artificial and the real in which natural elements bring levity and immateriality to his decidedly concrete forms, so what happens when that relationship is strained? Sunken Courts shows you with its mostly black and white photographs -- things get bleak. Fast. At least, it seems that way, for as one goes further down the rabbit hole of Sunken Courts, color photos are introduced, and voila, Ando's shown to be more than capable of integrating weak and fading light into his architecture as well.
