The Creative Emergencies workshop was a design event proposed by XJTLU and hosted by the KumaLAB from the university of Tokyo. It took place in March 2018, and during 4 days invited students from XJTLU and Tokyo University to think about architecture that could transform and react in the event of an earthquake.
Students worked in teams designing new types of public buildings that would morph in the event of an earthquake, changing both its function and physical form in order to assist and relieve the affected population.
