The Quotable Shigeru Ban

"I was disappointed in my profession," says architect Shigeru Ban, he who's famed for his temporary, sustainable buildings made from cardboard. More from his TED talk, Architects are Useless for Societies: "We are working for privileged people, for rich people, for government and developers. They have money and power, and those are invisible, so they hire us to visualize their power and money by making monuments of architecture." [TED blog via Arch Daily; previously]
