Shigeru Ban, the Cardboard Artist

Since we’re working with paper for our current project, I’ve been thinking a lot about what can be built with paper, and Shigeru Ban pushes the limit in this regard. Although cardboard isn’t technically paper, the creations of Ban are as numerous as they are impressive. Check out this church, for example, that he built in New Zealand following an earthquake:


or this temporary shelter he built for Japanese flood victims:


The creations of Shigeru Ban are stunning, and can help provide some inspiration for the paper projects we’re working on now!
