The works of disaster-response architect and 2014 Pritzker Prize laureate Shigeru Ban will be on display at the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) from late March. 

Ban is known for his pioneering work in the field of temporary, humane housing and the use of paper tube structures.

On display in SCAF’s courtyards are Ban’s Paper Log House from Kobe (1995), built in the aftermath of the Great Hanshin Earthquake, and a shelter designed for the relief effort in Ecuador (2016). 

Inside, a scale model of the Christchurch Cardboard Cathedral will take centre stage, accompanied by a scale model of Ban’s design for the Japanese pavilion at the Hannover Expo in 2000.

The exhibition is Ban’s first in Australia.
