Shigeru Ban's Cardboard Tube Architecture
December 05, 2004

An article on SlashDot about cardboard houses reminded me of Shigeru Ban, a Japanese architect who has designed beautiful structures using waterproofed cardboard tubes. He has developed methods for creating the tubes on site in areas where temporary shelters need to be built for refugees or disaster victims. However many of the structures he designs are meant to be permanent.
