This event will be a response to the “Global PechaKucha Night- Inspire Japan” event in 2011 and "IPPO x 365" event last year that archiPicnic successfully hosted.
What has happened since then?  Where are we now?  In the second year of ongoing Japan's recovery, how have designers and architects been able to address the massive damage in the cities, villages and buildings?  Each day has been a step towards recovery and rebuilding--what were these 365 steps like in Japan?

Become inspired!
