As part of Little Tokyo Design Week, a recently successful event hosted by Los Angeles, offices deegan day design and Open A of Japan curated an exhibition of 40 houses from Japan and California. The goal was to highlight 20 Japanese and 20 Californian architectural practices that explore new efficiencies of scale, construction and reduced ecological impact, posing innovative possibilities for the future of small-scale residential design. They had many exciting architects participate in this exhibition, such as, Neil Denari, Greg Lynn, Wes Jones, Sou Fujimoto, Makoto Tanijiri, Mt Fuji Architects just to name a few.

As part of their exhibition, most architects also donated a model to auction benefiting the recent disasters in Japan. Although their exhibition only lasted for four short days and they were able to raise over $3,000, they are also starting another auction for the remaining models on eBay. They are currently coordinating with the US-Japan Council in setting up an eBay account that will directly benefit the Japan Platform. The auction is tentatively scheduled for October 17th.
