Creation from Catastrophe – how Architecture rebuilds Communities

27 January - 24 April 2016, London

Destruction and devastation present unique opportunities to radically rethink our environment. This exhibition explores the varying ways that cities and communities have been re-imagined in the aftermath of natural or man-made exhibitions. Among the exhibition’s case studies, a number of Japanese architects and movements will be represented including the Metabolism movement showcasing works by Arata Isozaki, Kenzo Tange and Kisho Kurokawa, as well as 21st century solutions, such as the Homes-For-All project instigated by Toyo Ito and Shigeru Ban’s Nepal project from 2015.
