PART B_2

The Unusual Architect
Ban Shigeru is an architect who became famous for using unusual materials.
On January 17, 1995, an earthquake was experienced in Hanshin area. Ban saw victims standing near their badly damaged church. So, he asked the priest if they can build a new church using paper tubes. The priest did not agree. He said that the victims’ housing is more important. But Ban did not give up and told him that the church would serve as the victims’ community center. The priest finally agreed, so they started building the church.
Ban wanted to be different from others who just wanted to work for rich people. He wanted to help the people who are affected by disasters. So, he started using paper tubes, which are strong and always available, to build disaster-relief structures, schools, and churches. Ban does not let anything stand in his way in helping people. In 2010, Haiti experienced an earthquake. The airport to Haiti was closed, so he flew to Dominican Republic and drove for six hours to Haiti. Then, he built paper-tube shelters for the victims.
