OpenJapan: call for entries

Are you an architect or designer with an idea to help the affected people in Tohoku, Japan? Then get in touch with OpenSimSim, the open source architecture network based in Berlin. They are organizing an 72-hour crowd-sourced work-sprint to create a sustainable project for Japan. The sprint will kick-off on June 10 with a six-hour work session in Kyoto. The results will then be passed on to 11 cities worldwide, by order of timezone.

If you are interested, or want to learn more, head to their blog. I think it’s an amazing idea! Sort of like a contemporary, architectural spin on the surrealists’ exquisite corpse (except hopefully not as surreal)!


  1. If anyone in the NYC area wouldl ike to attend please RSVP to: with your name, profession, and days you would like to attend. Bring your ideas, knowledge, computers, pens and pencils!

  2. This is great! I was raised in Tokyo too, but am American. We used to spend a lot of time in Tohoku, so it’s very dear to me. Will have to pass on to my designer friends.
