Shigeru Ban Architects
“Works and Humanitarian Activities”

1.5 AIA and New York State CEUs

This lecture is co-sponsored by The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union.

Each year, The Architectural League’s Current Work series presents the work of significant international figures, who powerfully influence contemporary architectural practice and shape the future of the built environment. Shigeru Ban of Shigeru Ban Architects will present his work in a public lecture.

With a portfolio that spans diverse scales, from refugee housing and other temporary structures, to houses, commercial structures, and cultural facilities, Shigeru Ban’s work is united by structural innovation, creative use of unconventional building materials, and environmental sensitivity. The 2014 winner of the Pritzker Prize, Ban was lauded by the jury for “his respect for the people who inhabit his buildings, whether victims of natural disaster or private clients or the public…always revealed through his thoughtful approach, functional plans, carefully selected appropriate materials, and the richness of the spaces he creates.”
