Shigeru Ban

Incredible and such an inspiration! Last night I went to see  Shigeru Ban speak at the MFA in Boston. He is an unbelievable architect, humanitarian, and innovator with a humble demeanor, great wit, amazing ingenuity, awe-inspiring creativity, and absolutely wonderful creations. He had the audience laughing and in awe! A few years ago I was fortunate enough to see his Nomadic Museum in Santa Monica, CA. It is a traveling exhibition displaying the works of Gregory Colbert. I was completely blown away. The architecture and photographs fit seamlessly together…so peaceful and beautiful. Check out the link ashes and snow.
