Shigeru Ban: The Paper Log House at The Glass House marks the first time in six years that the innovative house will be on display in North America. In collaboration with The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, 36 architecture students will gain hands-on experience assembling the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban’s Paper Log House, a 14 by 14-foot enclosure made of paper tubes, wood and milk crates deployed to provide temporary housing for victims of disaster across five continents over the last 30 years. As part of a special project offered through the school’s Building Technology course this semester, students will fabricate the components at The Cooper Union then assemble the Paper Log House on the grounds of The Glass House, where it will remain on display through the upcoming tour season, April 15 – December 15th, 2024.
