Episode 115: Shigeru Ban – SCAF Exhibition

This week on Architel Jan Henderson talks with Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. Shigeru is known for his innovative work with paper, particularly recycled cardboard tubes and bamboo which can be used to quickly and efficiently house disaster victims. He was profiled by Time magazine in their projection of 21st century innovators in the field of architecture and design.

In April 2017 The Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) hosted an exhibition of Shigeru Ban’s work with cardboard and bamboo at their gallery in Sydney. Founder Gene Sherman also spoke to Jan Henderson about SCAF‘s role.

In 2014, Ban was named the 37th recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the most prestigious prize in modern architecture. The Pritzker Jury cited Ban for his innovative use of material and his dedication to humanitarian efforts around the world.
