London is hosting an exhibition of building projects created to aid Japan’s recovery from its 2011 earthquake

London is hosting an exhibition of building projects created to aid Japan’s recovery from its 2011 earthquake.

The Great East Earthquake and its resulting tsunami hit the coastline of Japan’s Tōhoku region three years ago.

An exhibition is being held at the Embassy of Japan in Piccadilly showing how architects helped people in the region.

Architects from home and abroad got together immediately to try and improve the conditions for those in communal evacuation shelters.

They also started to think about the future, from creating wooden temporary homes to longer-term urban planning.

The exhibition, How Did Architects Respond Immediately After 3/11?, is open on weekdays until 18 March. Photo ID is necessary to gain entry to the embassy.
