When natural disasters have become more and more frequent, and likely to be more damaging, the best thing for us to do is to be ready and prepared for any unpredictable events.
TCDC in collaboration with Japan Foundation invite you to join the workshop “What happens to the living spaces, when a disaster hits?”. This workshop is conducted by Masashi Sogabe, owner of Mikan, a Japanese architecture and design company with a wide range of works from buildings to furniture, product design, installations and exhibitions.
Masashi Sogabe collaborated with NPO Plus Arts on several projects related to the disaster preparedness, such as the BOSAI Expo 2008-2010, the “Potential of Glass” exhibition at AGC Studio in 2008 and an exhibition in MUJI stores in Tokyo in 2010.
With MIKAN, he has designed a variety of houses, school buildings and galleries, including the Toyota Group Pavilion at the Aichi Expo 2005, which won a Good Design Award; and SHIBUYA-AX, which won a Best JCD Design Award. He has also been a professor at the Department of Architecture, Faculty of Engineering, Kanagawa University, from 2006 to present.
Get prepared to cope with potential disasters by exploring the possibility and learning how to adapt everyday items, or even your home, community and city to help mitigate and protect us from the damage that could occur.
