It’s official: the 2014 Pritzker Prize goes to Shigeru Ban – one of Inhabitat’s favorite architects! The incredibly innovative and accomplished Japanese architect is well-known for his experimental and environmentally conscientious designs built from low-cost and recyclable materials such as cardboard tubes and shipping containers. A leader in disaster relief design work, Ban made waves with his recently completed Cardboard Cathedral in Christchurch, an incredible temporary replacement for a cathedral destroyed in the 2011 earthquake. In announcing the 56-year-old, Tokyo-based architect, Tom Pritzker said: “Shigeru Ban’s commitment to humanitarian causes through his disaster relief work is an example for all. Innovation is not limited by building type and compassion is not limited by budget. Shigeru has made our world a better place.”
