Winner of Pritzker Architecture Prize, Shigeru Ban has a microbial connection …

Just read this from NPR – In The Face Of Disaster, Pritzker Winner Shigeru Ban Designs Solutions : NPR.  It tells the story of how architect Shigeru Ban has won the prestigious Pritzker Prize in architecture.  In addition to being a very socially conscious architect, Ban also has an interesting connection to microbes and building design.  But not perhaps in the way one might think.

What I am talking about is when Shigeru Ban’s Centre Pompidou Met was transformed into a sort of living bacterial art display. See the video below:
