From an architect's standpoint, the Japanese Pavilion at the International Architecture Exhibition, Venice Biennale, to be held in Italy in 2012, will be the one that has a constructive proposal for the future of architecture.
It will feature works by Japanese architects whose theme will be the March 11 quake and tsunami.
"Architecture in the Wake of Disaster" will be curated by the Japanese Pavilion's commissioner, Toyoo Ito, 70.

"I want to ask architects around the world about what architecture means to them taking into account the disaster-stricken region," Ito told a recent press conference about the exhibition to be held next autumn.
He was selected from five candidates, who all proposed themes related to the Great East Japan Earthquake, according to the Japan Foundation organizing the national pavilion.

Ito's presentation is expected to begin with photos taken by Naoya Hatakeyama, a photographer who saw his parents' home in Rikuzentakata in Iwate Prefecture lost in the disaster, the country's worst in postwar years.
Ito and Hatakeyama are set to present a home where victims can gather by working with younger architects Kumiko Inui, Sosuke Fujimoto and Akihisa Hirata.

In the competition for the best pavilion, Ito's may be an early favorite.
In the 1996 architecture exhibition, the Japanese Pavilion won the best prize for its offering under the theme of the 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake.
