Idea Code 10461 $55.50
Profiled in Time Magazine as one of the 21st century’s key innovators, Shigeru Ban’s international reputation is founded not only on architecture but on humanitarian accomplishments. In 1995 Ban established the Voluntary Architects’ Network to organize post-disaster aid in the field of construction. The resulting paper houses and bridges, and temporary schools, concert halls and museums, are now globally famous and influential. This book of plans, designs, texts and photography, drawn from Ban’s respected teaching work at Keio University, is both a handsome monograph and a vital reference for progressive, philanthropic architecture.
