In discovery of the work of Pritzker Prize winning architect Shigeru Ban

Seventh Japanese architect awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2014 An unusual but important itinerary to discover a different side of architecture. Shigeru Ban, winner of the 2014 Pritzker Prize for architecture, is known as the architect who works with cardboard, bamboo, cloth, recycled plastic and paper by-products and locally available materials. Shigeru Ban’s architecture is lightweight, and can be taken apart and taken elsewhere, primarily to house refugees, providing relief to innocent victims of civil wars and natural disasters. Innovation and empathy: architecture which is designed not to make a profit but to respond to humanitarian causes. In the words of Renzo Piano, who became the second Italian architect to receive a Pritzker Prize for architecture in 1998, “architecture is a service, an art that makes things we need”
