Home For All, Rikuzentakata Japan – Toyo Ito

Led by Toyo Ito, a team of young Japanese designers has created a modest community center out of the wreckage using saltwater-soaked trees wiped out in the storm. For months volunteers came daily to help build the project, using the wood columns as structural supports. The Home-for-All project has become a beacon for the community, where the pangs of the storm remain sharp.
