A documentary about architecture, the creative process through the foundations and all the way until the building fits with the environment. Narrated by the self-taught, Pritzker Prize-winning Tadao Ando, one of the great architects of our time, who talks about his way of looking at life, beauty, art, architecture, and his profound links to the simplicity that connects with the most intimate humanity. With her camera, director Fernanda Romandía captures the construction of Casa Wabi, Bosco Sodi’s Foundation art residence by the mexican Pacific coast. A construction process that utilizes simple materials such as concrete, wood, palm and sand. One by one, pieces fit together as we watch the building own its space by the Pacific.
