Have you ever heard of the &quote;Temple Atomic Catastrophes&quote;?

A project planned by architect Seichi Shirai starting in 1954 when the Daigo Fukuryu Maru  crew members became victims of nuclear testing. A plan, that was also influenced from the aftermath of  Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing. Numerous  movies, literature, arts and comics based on nuclear weapons, but the Temple Atomic Catastrophes was the only work to come from the architectural field. The Temple Atomic Catastrophes contemplated the uncontrollable destruction of the nuclear power, and expresses a hope for peaceful “Coexistence” with society. But after 60 years, Japan became the only country to suffer both nuclear weapons and a nuclear meltdown spreading radioactive contaminations to the environment. What does the Temple Atomic Catastrophes means to us in history post World War Ⅱ? How can we comprehend “Coexistence” with all of the conflicts and arguments against nuclear? As the Temple Atomic Catastrophes brings us this serious question after 3.11, the exhibition shows the newly created CG model, the perspective and blueprint of the building left by the author. We also wish to create a place for a “new dialogue” of the nuclear across various viewpoints through workshops and showing videos of  interviews. This exhibition is planned as one of the project by the Temple Atomic Catastrophes’ construction committee. The organization is holding a project that is aim to build the Temple Atomic Catastrophes as a medical institution for radiation. by the production group of the Exhibition on Temple Atomic Catastrophes
