Building, dwelling, thinking is back with great international architecture

Building, dwelling, thinking is Cersaie’s cultural programme dedicated to architecture and design.

Each year Cersaie invites famous architects from all over the world to discuss their projects and their visions of contemporary architecture. 
The International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings hosted in 2021 the Pritzker Architecture Prize laureate Shigeru Ban.

The appointment with the Japanese architect - the first in-person conference to be held since the outbreak of the pandemic - took place at BolognaFiere and has been introduced by architecture historian Professor Francesco Dal Co.

Shigeru Ban has been the tenth Pritzker Prize winner to give a keynote lecture at Cersaie, following Tom Mayne, Renzo Piano, Kazuyo Sejima, Eduardo Souto De Moura, Rafael Moneo, Toyo Ito, Glenn Murcutt, Norman Foster and Richard Rogers.

Shigeru Ban

Winner of the 2014 Pritzker Architecture Prize, Shigeru Ban has demonstrated to the world the unlimited architectural potential of inexpensive and completely natural materials and has made lightness and sustainability his signature style.
He took part in Cersaie for the first time in 2012, when he gave a talk discussing his experience in designing housing for areas devastated by natural disasters such as earthquakes.
As cited in the jury statement for the award known as the Nobel Prize of architecture, “For Shigeru Ban, sustainability is not a concept to add on after the fact; rather, it is intrinsic to architecture. His works strive for appropriate products and systems that are in concert with the environment and the specific context, using renewable and locally produced materials, whenever possible.”
