Shigeru Ban

Shigeru Ban Architects
Paper Tube Structures
Cost-efficient, easy and temporary housing for people in need.

The first photos are of shelter built for victims of Japanese, Turkey
and Indian earthquakes between the years of 1994 and 2001.
These structures are made completely out of recycled materials,
such as beer crates, sand bags, rubble as foundation, bamboo and shredded waste paper.

Below are photos of the temporary homes created for some refugees
out of the 2 million that became homeless during the civil war in Rwanda in 1994.
They are created low-cost out of plastic sheets and paper tubes.
