Led by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects in association with Nowhere Resort, the main purpose of the Ex-Container Project is to provide immediate housing for those who were displaced following the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on 11th of March, 2011.

Utilizing the format of ISO shipping containers the homes are easy to transport and offer a higher quality housing solution at an affordable price.  Thinking beyond the short-term, the Ex-Container Project can initially be built as a temporary house and then converted to a permanent architectural structure.

Further details about the project and how you can offer support can be found here.
