Tadao Ando / Koshino HouseDuration: 59 minutes Directed: Rax Rinnekangas Year: 2009 About: The world-famous Japanese architect Tadao Ando (born 1941) designed the Koshino House for the fashion designer Hiroko Koshino and her family in Ashiya, Hyogo, Japan during 1979 – 80, 1980-81 and 1983-84.The building has become the symbol of a home made for light. The film reveals the Koshino House as a collection of all the fragments of Ando’s architectonical vocabulary – not forgetting the architect’s connection to the Japanese aesthetic tradition. It also tells the life story of Tadao Ando, a self-educated architect, and about his tendency to solve the mystery of timeless and solid architecture.   The Five Master Houses of the World – series Screening mode: DVD Language: Finnish Subtitles: English Distributor: Bad Taste Ltd – Rax Rinnekangas, a filmmaker, a photographer, a writer, – born 1954 in Rovaniemi, Finland Documentaries and art films 2009 The Colours of The Holocaust, 60 minutes Tadao Ando’s Koshino House, 60 minutes A Finnish Thought, 58 minutes Villa Mairea – the essence of a house, 50 minutes 2008 The Soul of Colour – the Art of Rafael Wardi, 24 minutes 2007 The Melnikov House, 58 minutes The Last Forest Boy, 28 minutes 2006 The Grief of A School, 27 minutes 2005 Zahara&Urga, 60 minutes Villa Mairea – a house under the pines, 27 minutes 2004 The Mystery of Peasant Lalli, 50 minutes Château de l’âme, 56 minutes Gryta, 6 minutes 2003 Master K and His School, 52 minutes Agon’s Land, 40 minutes The Last Bird, 7 minutes 2002 Yevgeny’s Love, 7 minutes 2001 From Eternal World – the Art of Elvi Maarni, 16 minutes Auschwitz 2000, 6 minutes Emma – Sculptor Kain Tapper’s restlessness, 25 minutes 2000 The Children of Another God, 30 minutes.
