Shigeru Ban: Humanitarian Architecture

When approximately half a million people were left homeless after the 1999 Izmit earthquake in Turkey, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban adapted his iconic Paper Log House (built from materials like recycled cardboard tubes hand-filled with shredded paper insulation by local children) to the people and climate of Turkey. The dwellings were expanded to accommodate the typical large Turkish family, and local plastic beer crates were put to use as foundation materials. In association with the Architecture League, New York, Ban will lecture on this work and more on Wednesday, June 17 at the Great Hall, Cooper Union. Featured image, of the finished Paper Log Houses in Kaynasli, Turkey (2000), is reproduced from Shigeru Ban: Humanitarian Architecture, which will be available at the talk.
