Related program: Design Open Mic
This week’s Design Open Mic Program on June 29th, featured three presentations including an update on our response to Japan by Hiromi Tabei, a refresh on the Football for Hope Program led by Mark Warren, and an introduction to Alma Ruiz, our newest Design Fellow, and her previous work.
Hiromi Tabei started Design Open Mic by discussing programs to reinvigorate the community of Motoyoshi, Japan. One of the main areas of focus was Hikado Market, which was badly damaged by the tsunami. The goal of the project is to recreate a “community center” for the neighborhood displaced by the tsunami.
