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

4 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 167 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 )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 99 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

Humanitarian architecture : Shigeru Ban( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1994, after seeing photographs of the plastic sheets given to Rwandan refugees to live under, Shigeru Ban went to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to propose ideas for better shelters. Since then, Ban has been critically heralded for his innovative approaches to environmentally sound architecture and his devotion to humanitarian efforts in the wake of some of the most devastating natural and man-made disasters. His temporary housing has employed everything from plastic beer cartons to paper tubes to create ingeniously flexible spaces. By sourcing unconventional, recycled, inexpensive, local and sustainable materials, he stimulates devastated economies by involving local resources and labor. These works stem from empathy and have restored shelter and gathering places, offering comfort, protection and dignity to stricken communities around the world"--Publisher
