Shigeru Ban : complete works, 1985-2010 by Philip Jodidio( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the definitive 'Paper Architect'. Every building ever realized by the renowned Japanese master. Shigeru Ban (b. Tokyo, 1957) attended SciArc in California and earned his degree at the Cooper Union School of Architecture in New York. Based in Tokyo and Paris, Ban consistently challenges accepted notions of architecture, designing a house without walls, or an exhibition space made from paper tubes and shipping containers. As one of his most important buildings nears completion - the Centre Pompidou-Metz in eastern France - this monograph, compiled with the architect's collaboration, traces his career and features every built work of Shigeru Ban, showing clearly why he is one of the world's most innovative and significant architects. Unlike many of his peers, Ban can create remarkable residences and still find time to design emergency relief housing for disaster areas from Kobe to New Orleans. Often using paper or cardboard tubes as a structural element, his designs give new meaning to the term 'Paper Architect'

Shigeru Ban by Matilda McQuaid( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rising architecture star Shigeru Ban designs and builds graceful structures using organic materials such as paper tubes, bamboo, and engineered wood. He has designed projects at both ends of the client spectrum, from one-room temporary houses for earthquake refugees to private seaside and urban villas, and has won widespread praise for his humanitarian efforts and innovative use of recyclable, affordable materials as well as for his poetic architectural style. This book, designed in collaboration with the architect, presents his projects in sections - paper, wood, bamboo, prefabrication, and skin - that delineate the major themes of his work, accompanied by technical information that documents Ban's pioneering tests on these materials."--Jacket

Shigeru Ban, la Halle du Toueur by Michel Quinejure( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dans ce "tramway" fluvial, les chalands se garaient au sein d'une péniche plombée qui les lestait pour limiter l'encombrement sous tunnel. Il incombait alors au toueur, le bateau tracteur électrique, de tirer le tout dans un vacarme assourdissant. La nouvelle halle s'inscrit dans un projet local de mise en valeur patrimoniale du transport fluvial sur le canal de Bourgogne. Réalisée avec peu de moyens, elle est le fruit d'un défi : celui pour Shigeru Ban de rendre permanente une structure légère, dont il a inventé le principe pour le pavillon japonais de l'exposition universelle de Hanovre
