Shigeru Ban has been a favorite of mine ever since I picked up a Phaidon book of his work. From paper pavilions to paper disaster-relief shelters to paper churches, he's stretched the limits of paper as a building material. He's done so again with his new paper bridge over the Gardon River in Southern France, which contrasts with the historical Pont du Gard stone Roman bridge just a half-mile down the river.
