Shigeru Ban (1957 – ) is a Japanese architect, known for his innovative work with paper, particularly recycled cardboard tubes used to quickly and efficiently house disaster victims. He was profiled by Time magazine in their projection of 21st century innovators in the field of architecture and design. In 2014, Ban was named the 37th recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the most prestigious prize in modern architecture. The Pritzker Jury cited Ban for his innovative use of material and his dedication to humanitarian efforts around the world, calling him "a committed teacher who is not only a role model for younger generation, but also an inspiration."

Massimo Mariani: Progetti 1980-2005, Masini, Lara-Vinca
4 Masini, Lara-Vinca Massimo Mariani: Progetti 1980-2005
Florence Verbavolant 2006 Hardcover New new 
Hardcover with dust jacket, 24 by 30 cm, 232 pp., illus. Dual language edition in English and Italian. New, sealed in the publisher’s shrinkwrap. Oversize book that will require additional postage for overseas shipping. From the publisher: “The architecture and design of Massimo Mariani is characterized by intriguing forms and bold colors. Objects designed by Mariani have won several awards and have been displayed in galleries and museums throughout the world. Mariani’s varied architectural projects include private residences, museums, and corporate offices. Massimo Mariani: Progetti 1980–2005 covers the first twenty-five years of activity by this Tuscan designer. Included are his early works done with Studio Stilema, which was dedicated to realizing experimental furniture, and projects from the heart of his career, which has been focused on interior design and architecture. Often Mariani’s commissions are for buildings in banal suburban settings but his expressive architecture incorporates color and luminosity to counterbalance the surroundings. The architect also applies this methodology to his interiors resulting in spaces that are bright, open, and animated. The book includes an introduction by architecture critic Lara-Vinca Masini that reconstructs the cultural context of Mariani’s work, beginning with his experiences in the sixties and seventies with the Radical Architecture movement in Florence.” (os) Dust jacket present.
