This event has ended.

This exhibition introduces the works of Shigeru Ban, the architect who also designed the MDS|G Gallery. Traditionally, only the wealthy can afford to have a famous architect build their designer mansion. However Ban's works are built for people in need of shelters, such as refugees or victims of natural disasters, and they are then built by students.
