“I came to the conclusion that recovery from Great East Japan Earthquake should be compared to Japan’s recovery from the World War II.” —Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, Co-founder, Atelier Bow-Wow and member of ArchiAid

Architects Momoyo Kaijima and Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, co-founders of the highly regarded architectural firm Atelier Bow-Wow in Tokyo, discuss the architect's role in post-disaster revitalization, and their findings from their work in Tohoku for the last six years. Kaijima and Tsukamoto are both founding members of ArchiAid, a group of architects who came together to contribute to the recovery of Tohoku. After the disaster on March 11, 2011, they began visiting the Oshika Peninsula, a remote area of Miyagi Prefecture known for its fishing villages. Tsukamoto designed Core House, a small house that can expand incrementally, and Kaijima, much to her surprise, started a fisherman’s school. Moderated by Nadine Maleh, Executive Director, Institute for Public Architecture. ArchiAid is a Japan Earthquake Relief Fund (JERF) grantee. Followed by a reception.

Commemorating the 6th Anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
