Hill of the Buddha by Tadao Ando

Hill of the Buddha by Tadao Ando Hill of the Buddha by Tadao Ando
A substantial stone Buddha in a lavender secured slope. Situated in the Makomanai Takino Cemetery in Sapporo, Ando was accused of forming the scene around the prior figure.
For a long time, the 44-foot-tall Buddha remained solitary as a grave 1,650-ton figure in a field. "As of recently, the Buddha statue has remained solitary in the field, giving an uneasy impression. The customer needed to give guests a more quiet energy about the Buddha," Ando shared. "Our thought was to cover the Buddha underneath the head with a slope of lavender plants. We called the thought the 'take off Buddha.'"

Guests are welcome to approach the Atama Daibutsu (The Buddha's Head) by means of a 130-foot burrow, the moderate approach uncovering the statue until one goes into an open vault, which enables the sky to go about as a corona for the figure. The base of the hill is grasped by water gardens, giving added peacefulness to the scene. Here, Ando plays with components of nature that gradually uncover the Buddha, whose take just marginally peers off of the hill.
