“Japanese architect Shigeru Ban operates in extremes, creating everything from disaster housing made of beer crates to museums with price tags in the tens of millions of dollars. But whatever the cost, all of his projects have embraced simple materials and natural surroundings. Ten years before winning the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2014, for example, Ban convinced the UN that his recycled-paper tube shelters could house refugees of the Rwandan civil war, a feat that eventually led to his TED talk on emergency shelters—and one that has made a lasting impact on the architecture world.”   (Yahoo UK – Decor Contributors)


This is an example of how Japanese Innovation in Architectural Design can contribute to the world’s needs!!  If you know of other interesting applications originating from Japan, please let us know!
