Container House (full scale) / コンテナ仮設住宅実寸模型

This is the first large scale individual exhibition, consisting of not only small models images, and photographs, but of full scale installations and mock-ups in which the visitor can actually experience with all five senses. Projects such as the Paper Partition Systems (PPS) used at the disaster stricken areas, temporary elementary school and housing, were partially reconstructed at full scale so that the interior spaces can be experienced as well. The full scale joinery mock-up of the recently completed Tamedia Office Building, fabricated in Switzerland, was also shipped over the Japan to be exhibited.
