The Core House, by Atelier Bow-Wow

The Core of the Matter

Atelier Bow-Wow gets reconstructive
This is the tale of two Japanese architecture firms who had the chutzpah to put their heads together and come up with a rather ideal solution for restoring housing to the people of Japan whose communities were devastated during the recent disasters. Comprised of a simple structure designed to be extendable, the Core House satisfies both the immediate need for accommodation and the near-future scenario when other family members are finally able to make their way back home.
