Shigeru Ban will be giving this year’s David J. Azrieli Lecture in Architecture.  Entitled “Works and Humanitarian Activities” it is likely to be one of the best of the year.  It will be held at the Leacock 132 Auditorium at 855 Sherbrooke Street West, and it begins at 6pm.

Shigeru Ban (坂茂, Ban Shigeru; born 1957 in Tokyo, Japan) is an accomplished Japanese and international architect, most famous for his innovative work with paper, particularly recycled cardboard paper tubes used to quickly and efficiently house disaster victims. Shigeru Ban was the winner in 2005 at age 48 of the 40th annual Thomas Jefferson Medal in Architecture from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. He was profiled by Time Magazine in their projection of 21st century innovators in the field of architecture and design.
