Gimme Shelter: The Best Architecture Books
Experimental, mass-made, or crumbling—architecture is a hot topic.
Famous for using paper tubes and cargo containers in his portable designs, Japanese architect Shigeru Ban gets the monumental treatment in Shigeru Ban: Complete Works 1985-2010. The book is also available in a 200-copy run with a wood-mesh cover resembling the roofing materials on Ban's new Centre Pompidou-Metz. (Taschen, $150 and $1,000)
