Guerilla architecture in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake
Wed–Sun 11 a.m.–6 p.m.
Closed Mon and Tue.
The enormous destruction caused by the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami has been in urgent need of attention from creative and critical thinkers since the catastrophe struck in 2011. Under the auspices of the organization Archi+Aid, architects have taken on the challenge of strategizing reconstruction, calling upon key members of the profession to take a leadership role in re-imagining what the built environment should be. This exhibition presents a selection of architectural and artistic projects that provide a variety of ways for leaders, citizens, and communities to think through their domestic and urban space, and to consider their place on an ever-shifting planet.
