Shigeru Ban Builds a Better World inspires children and families to learn about the remarkable work of one of the most acclaimed architects in the world, Shigeru Ban. Known for his innovative approach to materials and designs, Ban also regularly comes to the aid of disaster victims and refugees by designing temporary shelters that are typically made from inexpensive and recyclable paper tubes. His projects include a temporary school after the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, shelters after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and a church in New Zealand after the 2011 Christchurch earthquake.
