First, a joint team of American and Japanese architects will gather data on the architectural and urban design lessons to be learned from the Great Hanshin earthquake. The data gathering effort will document and analyze the impacts of the earthquake from the specific standpoint of the architectural ad urban design professions. Following the data gathering activity, a workshop will be convened in Washington, DC to present project findings, develop recommendations for future design and planning policy, and identify needed areas of research. ***
