Jan 31 | Shigeru Ban: An Architect for Emergencies
The award-winning Japanese architect Shigeru Ban is noted for his use of inexpensive construction materials such as paperboard and cardboard tubes. While his designs for prefab housing have been adopted by the United Nations to house earthquake victims, Ban has also used these lightweight but sturdy and relatively inexpensive materials to create breathtakingly beautiful homes, pavilions and churches. 52 minute running time.
