Japanese architect Shigeru Ban has been awarded the 2014 Pritzker Architecture Prize, the industry's highest honor. "He is an outstanding architect who, for twenty years, has been responding with creativity and high quality design to extreme situations caused by devastating natural disasters," cites the Pritzker Jury. "His creative approach and innovation, especially related to building materials and structures, not merely good intentions, are present in all his works."
