BENEFITING: Architecture for Humanity

ORGANIZER: Architecture for Humanity

EVENT: #STARTARYOT Challenge

EVENT DATE: Aug 19, 2013

THE STORY:

Resiliency and Access to Play

Partners: Nike Japan // Design Team: Toyo Ito and Associates

Impact: 600 children

Amount Funded: $400k // Amount needed: $40k

During the tsunami teachers and secondary school students helped rescue every primary school student. It was truly a miracle that these children all survived.

Today they nowhere to play sports freely and safely in Kamaishi, Iwate Prefecture. Architecture for Humanity, Nike Japan and KYSIN-no-kai are collaborating on the Kamaishi “Park for All” project to provide a space where children can enjoy sports activities at ease while being surrounded by the nature of Kamaishi.

Our proposal is to plant trees indigenous to the Tohoku region along the three sides of the park. From the north end, people can enjoy views of Kamaishi port, and the magnificent mountains over the Koushi River. Green mounds with gradual slopes surround the pitch, allowing people to lie on the grass for a nap, or watch children play games freely.

The “Home for All” clubhouse will be built on a small hill and be equipped with locker rooms, a saloon, an administration office, etc. This will be a place where the local residents and other children gather around a wood stove after a game of sports, to have warm conversations. The unique design of the roof will become a symbol of the area.
