Shigeru Ban to deploy temporary structures to Japan

Noted Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, has taken to his web site to ask for emergency support for the victims of the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami to announce his firm’s plans to deploy simple partitions for evacuees housed at gymnasiums in the Tohoku region.

“From now on, for people taking shelter in these sites, it is necessary to avoid distress from the lack of privacy and high density.” For information on how you can support this important disaster relief endeavor visit the architect’s website.
