Shigeru Ban

£24.99

Product description

Matilda McQuaid
Phaidon Press Limited, 2004. First published 2003.
Hardback; 250 x 290 mm; heavy coloured pictorial boards into which two (front cover) and three (back cover) vertical insets (circa 20 x 120 mm) have been incised; 240 pages. Profusely illustrated throughout with photographs and technical drawings. No dust jacket.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. The book is very slightly cocked. There is minimal chipping to the front cover insets. There is a slight bump to the top left corner of the back cover.
Rising architecture star Shigeru Ban designs and builds graceful structures using organic materials such as paper tubes, bamboo, and engineered wood. He has designed projects at both ends of the client spectrum, from one-room temporary houses for earthquake refugees to private seaside and urban villas. He has won widespread praise for his humanitarian efforts and innovative use of recyclable, affordable materials as well as for his poetic architectural style.
This book, designed in collaboration with the architect, presents his projects in sections – paper, wood, bamboo, prefabrication, and skin – that delineate the major themes of his work, accompanied by technical information that documents Ban’s pioneering tests on the materials.
