Emergency Shelter Exhibition

September 1, 2011

A three-day exhibition at Customs House in Sydney will raise awareness and aid for the thousands of people affected by the natural disasters in Japan.

A current exhibition at Customs House in Sydney has been organised to raise awareness and aid for the thousands of people who have been displaced by Japan’s natural disasters.

Australian and international architects are participating in this unique exhibition, which highlights the need for emergency shelter in disaster zones and raises awareness of the role of the design and construction industry in the aftermath of natural disasters.

The shelters in the exhibition demonstrate that shelter can not only provide protection from the elements, but can also play a vital role in the recovery process – providing a space in which to feel secure and comfortable.

Participating architects include Jean Nouvel, PTW, Tonkin Zulaikha Greer, Cox, LAVA, Sou Foujimoto, Terunobu Fujimori, Koichi Takada Architects and Greenleaf engineers.

Funds raised by the exhibition from sponsors and from the public will be donated to the areas affected by the Tohoku Great Earthquake.
