We had the pleasure to create a first micro-site for the newly founded NPO HOME-FOR-ALL. The bilingual English/Japanese website was created with responive web design approach for best display on mobile devices.
The NPO was initiated by Pritzker prize-winning architect Toyo Ito. The board members now include Junichi Kano, Riken Yamamoto, Kazuyo Sejima, Yasuhiro Yamashita and Astrid Klein & Mark Dytham from KDa (Klein Dytham architecture).
The NPO is planned as an umbrella organisation for the many – creatively designed – community houses in the Tohoku region, a region devastated by the 3/11 Tsunami in Japan.
See here for a few more details on this new NPO:
Home-for-All is a base for those who lost their homes or jobs after the earthquake and tsunami struck the north-eastern Tohoku region of Japan. A space to get on their feet again and recover a new life.
In the weeks following the earthquake, 5 volunteer architects – including Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima, and Riken Yamamoto, led a call to action for young architects to help make a difference. To this day, 11 Home-for-All community centres have been built in the disaster area.
Until now Home-for-All projects have been developed on an individual basis and have been led by NPOs, sponsoring organizations or local residential associations. But now, 3 years after the disaster, operational burden of running the centres is getting heavier and heavier.
Therefore we have decided to establish a single umbrella NPO, HOME-FOR-ALL to support each Home-for-All project. We applied to be an Japanese NPO on March 11th, 2014. the 3rd anniversary of the disaster and it will be fully established in August 2014.
