In today’s stroll through the PechaKucha archive we discover a more info on the building projects taking place in Japan post-tsunami.
Today we share the last batch of presentations from last week’s “PechaKucha x ArchiAid” event, and remind you that you can help the “Core House” project by donating on our Inspire Japan site — US$80,000 is required to bring the project to completion by its target date of Christmas Day. All of today’s presentations are in Japanese, but you can watch Atelier Bow-Wow‘s Yoshiharu Tsukamoto‘s English presentation for more on the project.
Senhiko Nakata from Team A Book talks about support activities in the Nagashizu area, in Miyagi-ken. Kumiko Inui talks about her project that offers up a variety of new plans for kids to enjoy school life, and the reconstruction of a junior high school in Shichigahama, Miyagi-ken. Ippei Takahashi shares a project to reconstruct a nursery in Shichigahama. It features a large interior garden (patio-like), and is made to look like a large village. SANAA‘s Naoto Noguchi talks about a reconstruction project on the island of Miyato with the goal of maintaining the traditional lifestyle of the locals, and to preserve the sights and island nature. Osamu Tsukihashi talks about a project with 22 universities (500 architectural students) to work on a model (at 1/500 scale) of the cities in the Tohoku area. Shoko Fukuya from the Tohoku Institute of Technology talks about a long running project (since last summer) in which universities around Japan are getting together to support the Tohoku region.
