Even though he has made a name in paper architecture, Shigeru Ban does not consider himself an environmental architect. The Naked House at Kawagoe, Saitama prefecture, Japan; the Nomadic Museum; the Cardboard Cathedral in Christchurch, New Zealand; and the Musée d'art Moderne Georges in Pompidou, Metz, France; these are just some of his masterpieces. They all have one thing in common: paper. He founded the “Voluntary Architects' Network” (VAN), a non-governmental organization which aids in building homes for refugees and evacuees. For his dedication to giving back to the community, he has been dubbed “The People’s Architect,” or the “Architect of the People.”
