Commemorating the 2nd anniversary of 3.11

To commemorate the 2nd anniversary of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, the Japan 3/11 Initiative team designed and installed a 20 meter high banner in the MIT Media Lab building lobby (Building E14).  The banner visualizes the average height of the tsunami waves as they hit land in the Minami Sanriku area.  The banner continues to the 5th floor, where both there and on the first floor passersby could read more.
