The Great East Japan Earthquake and following terrible tsunami devastated the coastal area of the Pacific Ocean in Tōhoku and Kantō areas. Many towns and villages were lost in an instant. The project aims at restoring the lost towns and villages by 1:500 scale models in order to inherit and preserve memories accumulated in local scenery, environment and life. Volunteer architecture students and university laboratories make the models and collect and record the residents' memories to represent lost towns and villages through the interviewing/painting 1/500 scale models workshops.
