Features: Shigeru Ban: On Responsibility

Project description

Shigeru Ban was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2014 for his tireless efforts in the design of temporary shelters in disaster areas around the globe. His “Paper Log House“ is a shining example of the conscious use of resources.

During a layover in Zurich on his way to the earthquake region of Ecuador the architect showed his first furniture collection made out of recyclable ­materials. DETAIL met with a reserved and earnest Shigeru Ban on this occasion.
