Shigeru Ban: Japan Earthquake Relief

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Shigeru Ban is an architectural firm in Japan that takes initiative to build and deploy cardboard partitions to displaced victims who are forced to take shelter in evacuation sites during natural disasters. Since the 2004 Niigata earthquake, Shigeru Ban has been constantly making revisions to their partitions to better fit the needs of each crisis situation. With thousands of families seeking shelter in school gyms due to the March 11 earthquake, which also triggered tsunamis and crippled a nuclear power plant, shelter is one of Japan’s main needs. You can help by donating to Shigeru Ban’s cause.
