6 years since The Great East Japan Earthquake, we have finally come to the stage where Prefectural governments are beginning to dismantle the temporary housing units. At Alliance for Humanitarian Architecture, with Japan Institute of Architects and Architecture firm Haryu Wood Studio from Minamiaizu town, are currently looking into working together to seek effective ways to reuse these temporary homes than to leave them to become waste. Today, we visited one of the temporary housing complex in Fukushima City. This complex includes pre-fabs, as well as several variations of wooden temporary homes. The conditions of these units were surprisingly well considering they have been used for nearly 6 years.
