The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth celebrates the 15th anniversary of its opening with the publication Tadao Ando’s Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth: 15 Years.

The building first opened to the public in December 2002.

Japanese architect Ando’s design for the Modern was the unanimous choice of the Museum’s Architectural Review and Long Range Planning Committee.

According to a news release, Ando’s book will include eight interviews between himself and the Modern’s former Chief Curator Michael Auping, spanning 1998 to 2015. The book will also cover the design and construction phases of the building, and include Ando’s thoughts on the nature of architecture and an interview in which Ando reflects upon the museum and his latest work.

A native of Osaka, Japan, Ando established Tadao Ando Architect & Associates in 1969. A self-taught architect, he has received awards for his work many times, including the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the Carlsberg Architectural Prize, the Royal Gold Medal of the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Kyoto Prize and the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal Award.

Michael Auping served as chief curator of the Modern from 1993 to 2017. His first book with Ando, Seven Interviews with Tadao Ando, was published in 2002, has been translated into four languages and offers a look into Ando’s life and work.

The softcover book, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth: 15 Years, is 146 pages and is illustrated with more than 90 images of the Modern, other architectural projects by Ando, photographs of the architect and more.

The book retails for $30 and will be available beginning Dec. 7 in the Modern Shop and the Modern Shop Online.
