The recipient of the 2014 Pritzker Architecture Prize, Shigeru Ban is no stranger to the role of humanitarian. He work often revolves on the innovative use of inexpensive materials (such as paper) and the construction of emergency shelters.  Ban’s use of paper tubing structures, goes hand in hand with the reality of limited material availability during times of disaster relief, since it is often not considered a building material and is comparatively inexpensive and accessible.

Shigeru Ban Humanitarian Architecture highlights Ban’s various relief efforts around the world. There are detailed photographs & floor plans through out the book.
