On my way back to Naoshima that night, I thought about Sadao’s words and remarkable life and Tadao Ando’s central role in my own experience of Japan. Fifteen years ago, at a dinner surrounded by Rem Koolhaas, Peter Eisenman, Jacques Derrida and Daniel Libeskind, I realized that the rough-skinned man sitting on the other side of me was my true architectural hero. The next day, Ando graciously showed me his work in Kyushu – even giving me the simple formula for his tofu-like concrete.
