Architecture for Humanity Tokyo is the Tokyo chapter of the design-based, charitable disaster response organisation Architecture for Humanity.
Currently, our main objective is to facilitate collaboration among Japanese and international designers, architects and planners contributing to the long-term revitalisation of Japan's tsunami-affected Tohoku region in the aftermath of March 11 2011.
We embrace the viewpoints of activists, citizen groups and professionals, active in Tohoku communities, throughout Japan and around the world, to foster the exchange of ideas, best practice experiences and the provision of practical support.
In recognition that other communities around the world have faced similar reconstruction issues, we have initiated the Tohoku Planning Forum project that aims to leverage international experience and enable mutual learning.
We provide a platform for socially responsible design advocacy; partnering design professionals with local non-profit organisations, schools, government agencies and community groups, we create innovative, sustainable, affordable solutions to humanitarian issues.
