Location: Kobe, Japan
Architect: Shigeru Ban
Year: 1995 (Temporary)

Shigeru Ban is famous for figuring out how to build real structures - not the ones you might have produced in your backyard - from recycled paper cardboard tubes. The Takatori Catholic Church was initially erected in Kobe after the Great Hanshin earthquake of 1995. Later, the church was moved to Taiwan. Ban's work is known as "Paper Architecture."
