Wooden Prefabricated Temporary Housing/ Kumamoto Earthquake, Japan

Mifune, Kumamoto, Japan / 熊本県御船町


This is a housing complex of three wooden temporary buildings with a community space for ten families at Mifune Town in Kumamoto Prefecture. The structure of the temporary house is built from structural panels comprised of wood and plywood. The panels are prefabricated at the factory and then brought to the site. In this way it enables to shorten the construction period at the site. By using the structural panels as the final finishing material it can minimalize the use of finishing material. The community space is a collaboration project between Shigeru Ban Architects, Voluntary Architects’ Network, Keio University SFC Shigeru Ban Lab, and Kumamoto University. The team will also design a community space within the site.
