As part of the Little Tokyo Design Week event in Los Angeles this past July, deegan day design of Los Angeles and Open A of Japan curated an exhibition of 40 houses from Japan and California called Tokyo/LA Houses. 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.
As part of their exhibition, many architects also donated a model to auction benefiting the recent disasters in Japan. Although this exhibition only lasted for four short days, they were able to raise over $3,000. Tokyo/LA Houses, with the help of US-Japan Council, started another auction for the remaining models until December 20th on eBay. More information on the auction after the break.
