Japanese Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2012

Architecture possible here? Home-for-All is the title of Japan’s contribution to the 13th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, Italy. The exhibition in the Venice Biennale’s Japanese Pavilion deals with the devastation the earthquake and tsunami of 2011 caused in East Japan. It shows photographs of the earthquake by Naoya Hatakeyama and alternative housing solutions for the people who lost their homes by the young japanese architects Kumiko Inui, Sou Fujimoto, and Akihisa Hirata. The Japanese Pavilion – curated by Toyo Ito – has been awarded the Golden Lion for Best National Participation at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
