who's your favourite architect these days, nicies?
a brilliant, innovative & award-winning architect, shigeru ban's reknowned works include the most fabulous permanent paper structures made from inexpensive, recycled materials like paper-board & tubes of cardboard. (i can't stop leafing thru the latest book: shigeru ban: paper in architecture! eegadz his work is amazing!) while he works in many medium, i'm especially in love with the paper delights!
and just incase that wasn't enough to love, his amazing designs for prefab emergency housing, shelters, schools (even churches!) have been adopted by the united nations for numerous emergencies around the globe. and he's the founder of VAN ( the voluntary architects network!)
brilliant & ethical & functional.
