Unexpected Things Made Out of Paper.
Slide Nr 2
There’s really nothing you can’t make from paper. Case in point: Pritzker Prize-winning Tokyo-based Shigeru Ban Architects, who specialise in cardboard architecture. They’ve built everything from Expo pavilions and temporary domes to travelling exhibition spaces out of the light, low-cost, recyclable material. Their techniques can also provide quick disaster relief after an earthquake, by providing housing, rebuilding schools or even, in the case of Christchurch, New Zealand, an entire cardboard cathedral.
