Tadao Ando is a self-taught architect whose lines are strongly influenced by the modern movement and especially by Le Corbusier. In 1969 he opened his studio Tadao Ando Architects & Associates. In the '70s receives international attention for the construction of houses inserted in the conurbation chaotic and discordant in Osaka.

Its structures are made according to his inclination to introversion, seems to crop environments away from the outside world with the exception of a few opening that frame views of the sky and nature. Almost exclusively uses the exposed concrete, recalling shapes and sizes of Japanese tradition, and comparing it to wood or stone. The stereometric volumes create three-dimensional paths that cross internal and external. The light always plays a vital role within its projects.

The house in Monterrey, Mexico, completed in 2011, is one of the last works of the Japanese and fully reveals his stylistic character. The building of pure cement emerges from the slope of a wooded hill overlooking Monterrey and exemplifying the poetic use of materials, light and natural elements by Tadao Ando.
