Groundswell Exhibition

TYPE: Arts
CLIENT: MAK Center for Art and Architecture
SIZE: 385 sqft exhibit
COLLABORATOR: still room
Groundswell was an exhibition hosted by the Schindler House/MAK Center in the winter of 2014.

Frustrated by the slow and inept government response to the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011, a number of architects took it upon themselves to address the trauma and rebuilding needs of area residents.

Groundswell presented a selection of their efforts as it engaged the ongoing conversation of how architecture can serve communities following a natural disaster. The exhibition featured works by artist Hiroyasu Yamauchi and architects Hitoshi Abe, Manabu Chiba, Momoyo Kaijima and Yoshiharu Tsukamoto of Atelier Bow-Wow, and others.

The exhibition design was a GROUP EFFORT project, executed in collaboration with Jessica Fleischmann and Dorothy Lin of still room.
