Tadao Andro working at 132 Elizabeth Street development

Recently purchased for a cool $21 million by developers Saif Sumaida and Amit Khurana, 132 Elizabeth Street Apartments will soon begin construction, how exciting! Aiming to be completed by 2016, the developers are heard to be employing the master himself: Tadao Andro. Hailing from Japan, he still lives there, Andro is a famous for being a self taught architect, a pretty tough job considering he was previously a truck driver and professional boxer. His style represents spacelessness and extreme simplicity, using mostly concrete to promote cleanliness and weighlessness, nice!
