Japan 2011, a terrible earthquake + tsunami stroke entire cities and put people into caos. In front of emergency, loss and alienation, can architecture give any help? In 2011 Japan was hit by a strong earthquake (the most powerful ever registered in the country) and the Government immediately started rebuilding plans. These rebuilding strategies are submitted to strict rules, on order to optimize time and saving money…and leave very little freedom to architects, too little for those that see high potential post-emergency rebuilding. The KYSIN group is set up exactly in this occasion.
Living habits rule over the living space, as the oriental aesthetic requires. Adopting this approach, even when the space is limited, the interior design allows every inhabitant to have his own privacy.
