At our weekly HQ Design Open Mic, Architecture for Humanity's newest Japan Design Fellow Akinobu Yoshikawa shared how he navigated multiple disasters that struck when he lived in Kobe, New York, Los Angeles and Sendai. These experiences informed his decision to become an architect and his approach to design. In addition, Aki showed photos and sketches of his recently completed project, an assembly hall and tower in Minamisoma, Fukushima. This assembly hall is on the site of a housing community for 500 families displaced by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
