MAN AND HIS EFFORTS to build and extend Empires have frequently resulted in the large-scale destruction of land and landmarks. Our Earth is typically left ravaged by humanity, an environmental cost deemed necessary in this age of rapid globalisation and industrialisation.

One of the foremost architects working today, Toyo Ito has been energetically dedicated to reconstruction activity after the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. He initiated the project, “Home-for-All”, which is a communal hut for people who have been affected by the tsunami to gather and interact with one another. Twelve “Home-for-All”s have been completed as of February 2015, and three more are being constructed. These “Home-for-All”s have become quite varied in character, and include gathering places for residents of temporary housing, spaces intended to restore communities, play areas for children and centres for non-profit organisations that are trying to revive farming and fishing industries.

Join Ito – winner of the illustrious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2013 – for an enlightening and eye-opening evening in which he provides insight into the possibilities and promises of architecture. In a world where we design homes
primarily for ourselves, Ito talks about the joys and challenges of creating spaces and platforms where people can meet, bond and create.
