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

5 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 186 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'."--Publisher's website
Shigeru Ban by Matilda McQuaid( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'For all his experimentation, Ban is not simply a technician. He is just as interested in spatial concepts and social projects. It's this range and his lateral thinking that come across in the wonderful book, leaving one in no doubt that Ban, at only 46, is probably the most dazzling figure on Japan's architectural scene today."

5 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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." - ideabooks.nl
Shigeru Ban : Humanitarian architecture by Shigeru Ban( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 31 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

Shigeru Ban is a Japanese architect who studied in the United States. This study is centred on a series of projects which explore the possibilities of unconventional materials such as paper tube structure.

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shigeru Ban has earned much praise for his wide-ranging activities and innovative approach to addressing contemporary problems through architecture and design, such as using recycled cardboard tubes as a structural material to provide housing for disaster victims. Besides his dedication to humanitarian efforts, Ban's interest in materials expresses his minimalist ideology, one that often leads him to choose existing materials and techniques over state-of-the-art solutions. Ban was involved in selecting the more than 100 important works in this publication, divided into five categories, that together reflect a clear departure from other architects of his generation
