Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, wins architecture’s highest honor, The Pritzker Architecture Prize. He is best known for creating buildings out of paper.
Architect magazine discusses Ban’s work. I first learned about Mr. Ban at the Barbican Art Gallery exhibit in London a few years ago entitled Alvar Alto through the eyes of Shigeru Ban. It drew parallels between the work of renowned Finnish architect Alvar Alto (1898 – 1976) and Shigeru Ban (b. 1957).
His latest wooden work of art can be visited at the Aspen Art Museum in Colorado.
