A humble shout out to Ban

My own silent congrats to Shiguru Ban for winning the 2014 Pritzker Prize; long over due in my estimation. 

Ban has shown us the true meaning of 'simple'; something that has not been witnessed with such finesse and such humility for decades (thinking Mies, of course). Through his public and domestic constructions  - Ban has transcended the known experiences of architectural expectations, elevating spatial manifestations into didactic realms of beauty, function and simplicity. 

Thank you Ban: simply put, 'you ROCK'!
