Description of contents
Traces of Ban's architecture systematized with five themes.
Shigeru Ban won the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2014. The architect has earned plaudits for his wide-ranging activities, which among much else include the use of paper tubes as structural material, a wooden and large framing space, and providing humanitarian support in disaster-affected areas. More than 100 important works have been selected from his activities, reflecting a clear departure from other architects in the same generation. The works are divided into five different subjects and deciphered. This is the first selection of the works of Ban, who himself was also involved in structuring the selection.
