With Love from Japan: Earthquake-Proof and Tsunami-Proof Soccer Ball Houses – As Seen at the Randall MuseumThursday, January 8th, 2015
Head on up to our Randall Museum to see other outside of the box / 20-sided truncated icosahedron ideas on earthquake safety.
From the source, the “Barier” people:
“Is your present house OK? Is it strong enough to endure a great earthquake or flood to be caused by global warming? Barier offers a safe, living space, a multi-functional, elegant and playful space, emphasizing each individual personality.
Barier is a soccer ball-shaped house developed by us (international patent pending). A soccer ball with which you played in your childhood gets bigger like a dream ball and appears as a place to live in. It floats on the sea and can be a rescue ship. We believe it will be a gift to those who never give up a dream.”

Boy, I wish my cell phone had Siri.*
Take a Look at Japantown in 1942: “Cherryland Sukiyaki (Japanese and American), 1650 Post St., sake and beer”Friday, August 1st, 2014
Oh wow, man. I’m not used to seeing outer Post Street from the pre-Redevelopment era.
(Then the people from SPUR came along with “ideas and action for a better city” to Urban Renewal this place with big, hulking, earthquake-unsafe buildings (“The Mall Has It All!” – that’s what the SPUR people used to say before they changed their name to hide from their legacy) and garages and that’s where we are today.)
Esquire: “For Sukiyaki complete with chopsticks, visit “Cherryland,” where only Japanese food is served.”
