    How Did Architects Respond Immediately After 3/11 – The Great East Japan Earthquake

    On March 11, 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake and a massive tsunami hit the Tohoku region of Japan. It was the most powerful earthquake to ever hit Japan leaving homes, buildings, towns completely destroyed. This catastrophic event left architects wondering “what architecture could accomplish in such a situation.” How Did Architects Respond Immediately After 3/11 (The Great East Japan Earthquake) is an exhibition that was assembled by The Japan Foundation with the intention to exhibit  the diversity of approaches to post disaster architecture that was implemented by architects in the 3/11 disaster zones of Japan. The response from architects can be divided into three phases. These phases are still being planned out and implemented today. 
    1)    Emergency Responses
    2)    Temporary Housing
    3)    Reconstruction Projects
    At this exhibition, you can expect to gain a deeper understanding of the numerous people and their projects that helped realize a path to recovery. There will be panel displays of project summaries with drawings, illustrations, and photographs.
