From a minimal shelter for emergency situations to large cultural facilities, like the just inaugurated La Seine Musicale in Paris, Shigeru Ban has designed a broad range of projects that reconcile technical inventiveness, aesthetic sensibility, and social commitment. Number 195 of AV Monographs reflects the multi-faceted character of the Japanese master – Pritkzer Prize laureate of 2014 –, with a selection of twenty works classified in four sections that take stock of his main lines of work: ‘Material Ecology,’ ‘Domestic Innovation,’ ‘Emergency Projects,’ and ‘Sustainable Grids.’ The introductory texts of the monograph are signed by Ban himself and by the expert Riichi Miyake.
