Simplicity is of the essence in the work of Japanese-American architect Tadao Ando, and his first New York City building is no exception. For 152 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan's Nolita, the visionary minimalist partnered with American architect Michael Gabellini to translate his signature style to the New York City skyline." Many of Tadao Ando's projects have a subtle spatial sensibility that combines a series of basic elements"�concrete, metal, glass and wood"�where beauty is found in the simplicity and refinement of nature," explains Gabellini. "Like Ando, I strive to create timeless spaces that heighten these primary elements, using them to define interior and exterior spaces." At 152 Elizabeth, this sensibility carries through from exterior to interior in a model unit of Gabellini's design. anexclusive8 anexclusive7 anexclusive6 anexclusive5 anexclusive4 anexclusive3 anexclusive2 anexclusive1 by Hadley Keller, Architectural Digest
