Shou-sugi-ban is the ancient Japanese technique of burning Sugi, or Japanese Cypress, for use as a siding on the exterior of buildings. The first reason to do so was to protect against fire. It also turned out to make it more durable. The technique is still used on places like Naoshima, in Japan. The Japanese architect Terunobu Fujimori made some beautiful projects this way and inspired many of us.
