Titre original : Looking Back, Moving On
More than 5 years after the tsunami caused by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake swept away thousands of homes, physical evidence of the communities that existed before the disaster is fading as reconstruction progresses. For those who lost homes and loved ones, rebuilding is erasing places linked with memories of happier times. Now, a group of architects has launched an initiative to draw up the floorplans of lost homes. From these floorplans, nostalgic scenes spring to life, offering tsunami survivors who long to look back the courage to move on.
