Last Friday OpenSimSim’s 72-hour crowd-sourced work-sprint kicked off and continued rolling all through the weekend. Overlapping with the 3-month anniversary of Japan’s disastrous earthquake and tsunami, work-groups in 11 cities combined efforts during different time zones to propose some really great ideas for Japan. Check out all the entries here.

Instead of permanently abandoning the inherently risk-prone shore line, this project proposes 3 different zones that can be rebuilt to coexist with the threat of another tsunami.

This project proposes the use of rubble as an infill to create a new landscape that would preserve the memory of the disaster.
