This chapter intends to show how Tadao Ando's phenomenological concerns have been reflected in his architectural thought — in his texts and writings — and how we can discover his phenomenological approach by an investigation of his words. In this sense, the chapter title denotes the phenomenological thinking of Ando that can be gleaned from his words. After a short introduction to Ando's architectural thinking, a thematic analysis of his writings is presented with their clear or hidden phenomenological connotations. The main argument is that there are clear phenomenological concerns in Ando's words which connect him to phenomenological discourse. Situating these themes within current phenomenological discourse and connecting them to the ideas of other phenomenologists, the source of his phenomenological approach will be discussed and clarified.
