Project Title
Post-Disaster: Japan's Response to the 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami
Student Name
Nuguid, Vail
Student Statement
The purpose of this research trip to Japan is to identify the qualities of successful post-disaster city planning and architecture, which can potentially be applied towards immediate and impervious strategies on a global level. Since the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, Japan has undergone massive improvements, due to advancements in construction technology, community-centered and forward-thinking designs as well as a general faith in rebuilding and recovery. Albeit, some of the tsunami-prevention strategies have stirred international controversy, the Japanese are the undoubted frontrunners in ensuring resiliency in saving human lives. Hopefully this information will shed light on some of the ways we as designers can rethink disaster-risk management and recovery.
