ILC constructed in Tokyo’s Roppongi area

by Rika Takahashi

A not-to-be-missed event in Tokyo this autumn was a 15-metre-long original art work representing the ILC. Designed by famous architect Jo Nagasaka, the exhibition was built with the help of more than 300 students in a traditional Japanese way with rammed earth. In one week, more than 40,000 enthusiastic visitors had the chance discover the ILC project in a unique way.
