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.
