How Did Architects Respond Immediately after 3/11?

Embassy of Japan

Press Release
29 July 2014


Japan Foundation’s Exhibition:
“How Did Architects Respond Immediately after 3/11? (The Great East Japan Earthquake)”

Open Daily 9am-5pm, 30 July-20 August 2014, Free Admission
Atrium of Victoria University of Wellington
Te Aro Campus, 139 Vivian Street, Wellington

The Embassy of Japan, in cooperation with Victoria University of Wellington, is very pleased to introduce the Japan Foundation’s exhibition.

Images of the devastation following the powerful 9.0 magnitude earthquake in East Japan in 2011 are still fresh in our minds. This exhibition highlights how architects have come together in the face of tragedy to share their knowledge and passion in the common goal of helping affected residents piece their lives back together.

The exhibition is presented in an easy-to-follow format using visual and text panels, models and video presentations. It takes the viewer on a journey from the initial disaster relief efforts, to support for displaced residents and ultimately to the rebuild of affected regions. It features proposals from various architects, including Shigeru Ban, who is widely recognised in New Zealand for his design of the Cardboard Cathedral in Christchurch.
