Have you ever dreamed about your own house? What kind of house do you want to live? When we build houses, we are going to order our requests to architects. Today, I would like to introduce an architect, and after that I will tell you about my opinion for his work.
First of all, I would like to introduce an architect. His name is Shigeru Ban. He is Japanese architect. He is the only architect who build buildings by paper tubes. According to TED, he started testing the paper tube for use it as a building construction before people fussed about ecology and environment problem. He found that paper tube is very strong, very easy to waterproof and possible to fireproof through the experiment. In 1990, he built the temporary structure. That was the first temporary building which made of paper. In 2000, he received a request that build buildings made out of paper in expo because the theme of the expo was environment problem. Then he built the Pompidou Center in Metz. It's a very popular museum now, and he created a big monument for the government. However, he had begun to hold dissatisfaction in the occupation. There are the people who distressed by natural disasters in the world. He wanted to work for the people more than for the government. That’s why he is working for the people now, and he create many buildings.
Next, I am going to tell you about my opinion for his work. I didn’t know anything about him before I listened his presentation on TED. I think he is very creative architect. His ideas were interesting. I have never thought that papers can be materials of building constructions. I think it is very good for environment. I wondered how he had thought of this idea. Although his work is very interesting, he is not famous in Japan. His skill and work are very cool, so I think it is cool Japan. I want him to be more famous not only in Japan but also in the world.
In conclusion, I could know about very creative architect. I think there are a lot of people who don’t know him not only in Japan but also foreign countries, so I want the people to watch his presentation on TED. In my opinion, I think his work and actually he is cool Japan.
