Tohoku Planning Forum #2

英語で行うが、この東北の震災後の復興計画に関するフォーラムはForeign Volunteers Japanの活動に役に立つかもしれません。

私は第一回のフォーラムでボランティア活動について発表をしていて、とっても良いディスカッションになりました。FVJは団体としてこれから段々大きくなって行くから、将来の活動についてはいろいろ考えなければならないと思うので、もし東京に居て、月曜日の夕方に都合が開いてたら、是非参加して見てください。

On Monday, January 16th, the Tohoku Planning Forum will be holding its second seminar regarding the rebuilding of the tsunami-hit regions of Tohoku.

A few FVJ members took part in the first forum and found it to be a valuable experience providing many lively discussions on what needs to be done, and how to better manage resources for reconstruction. Since FVJ is gradually expanding our project scope, I think this forum could be a good experience for gaining some perspective on what still needs to be done, and to continue planning how we can address some of those needs.

Starting from 19:00 on Monday at Keio University, this time’s forum welcomes three eminent Japanese experts with firsthand experience in community building in various places in Tohoku:

1. Prof. Hiroto KOBAYASHI, Keio University
(Minamisanriku: Community building in temporary housing estates, rural-rural community support)

2. Prof. Naoto NAKAJIMA, Keio Univerisity
(Kamaishi: Learning from past disasters in Tohoku and reconstruction in Kamaishi)

3. Prof. Michio UBAURA, Sendai University
(Ishinomaki: Downtown revitalisation and reconstuction of a commercial center)

The event is produced by Architecture for Humanity, Tokyo (@AFHtyo) and Tokyo Planning Forum (@TPFsquare), in cooperation with Keio University.

Please consider checking it out on Monday if you can. Hope to see you there.

    In relation to buildings, architecture has to do with the planning, designing and constructing form, space and ambience that reflect functional, technical, social, environmental, and aesthetic considerations. It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of material, technology, light and shadow. Architecture also encompasses the pragmatic aspects of realizing buildings and structures, including scheduling, cost estimating and construction administration. As documentation produced by architects, typically drawings, plans and technical specifications, architecture defines the structure and/or behavior of a building or any other kind of system that is to be or has been constructed.^
