Sendai eqrthquake viewed from Toyo Ito building


Christopher Hawthorne from the LA Times has found and reposted a video shot during last week’s earthquake in Sendai, Japan. The video, taken by someone in Toyo Ito’s Mediatheque (a cultural center built in 2001), shows the building swaying for what must have felt like an eternity. Hawthorne’s article also includes before and after photos of Toyo Ito’s building. To read the article and view the video, go to the LA Times Culture Monster.
