About House For All Project
HOME-FOR-ALL is a program which gives shelter for those who lost their homes or jobs in the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11th 2011.
They are spaces where people can get together and build a new community life. In the weeks following the earthquake a group of architects, lead by Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima, and Riken Yamamoto established a volunteer organization working with younger architects to help make a difference and build HOME-FOR-ALL community houses in the disaster area.
The HOME-FOR-ALL community houses are built in the areas of temporary housing and fishing harbors. The usage of the houses range from gathering spaces for people who live in temporary housing, places for communities to recover, play spaces for kids and bases to rebuild the agriculture and fishery industry.
