Currently taking place at the Art Tower Mito‘s Contemporary Art Gallery and Plaza until May 12, the ‘Shigeru Ban – Architecture and Humanitarian Activities’ exhibition is the architect’s largest exhibition and encourages visitors to think about the architect’s role in society. From his early works and a pioneering new architectural material to an ongoing disaster project, the exhibition explores the diverse activities and achievements of the architect as well as his vision and spirit to challenge social issues and disasters. Featuring architectural models, mock-ups, photographs, videos of his major and important works, and furniture, Ban is known for his innovative work constructed by developing or applying building materials from objects already existing in our everyday lives.
