Kamaishi Elementary School Renovetion Project

2011 - 2012




This is a conversion project for abandon school in Kamaishi city, Iwate prefecture, damaged by the earthquake and tsunami in 3.11. In the afflicted area, the lack of recovery base( places for temporary stay, or spaces for meeting) have delayed the process of recovering schedule. Chiba lab proposed conversion plans for 2 abandoned school, combining temporary shelter for the local victims, lodging facilities for the rescue team and meeting space. The converted school may be use as community center after the revival. The modeling is designed in low budget, low running cost and using the existing stock, so this system can be widely use not only in afflicted area but also in other developing local areas as well.
