Tadao Ando — Japanese Architect born on September 13, 1941,

Tadao Ando is a Japanese self-taught architect whose approach to architecture and landscape was categorized by architectural historian Francesco Dal Co as "critical regionalism"... (wikipedia)

When you look at Japanese traditional architecture, you have to look at Japanese culture and its relationship with nature. You can actually live in a harmonious, close contact with nature - this very unique to Japan.
When I draw something, the brain and the hands work together.
My hand is the extension of the thinking process - the creative process.
In the West there has always been the attempt to try make the religious building, whether it's a Medieval or Renaissance church, an eternal object for the celebration of God. The material chosen, such as stone, brick, or concrete, is meant to eternally preserve what is inside.
If you give people nothingness, they can ponder what can be achieved from that nothingness.
