Video: The Architecture of Shigeru Ban
This video, from the Wall Street Journal, is a short interview with Shigeru Ban. He discusses his architecture, his use of interesting materials such as paper tubes as structural elements, and talks about his believe that architects need to work for all sorts of clients, not just the rich elite. I am a huge admirer or Shigeru ban's work and even applied to his Tokyo office a couple of years ago. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he was awarded the next Pritzker Prize although he will have some competition from Steven Holl and Sanaa.
