To celebrate 50 years of Record Houses, we invite you to visit a vintage
Record House each month in 2005. We’ll treat you to a glimpse of these ex-
ceptional buildings as they’ve evolved since initially appearing on our pages.

This month, we revisit Tadao Ando's 4 x 4 House, in Kobe, Japan, completed in 2003 and published in the April, 2004 issue. Where once the iconic concrete tower residence stood alone, now there are two. The home has been replicated identically right next door.
