Running the Tokyo Marathon for Home for All

BY MARK DYTHAM
@ VOL 111 ON FEB 20, 2014

PechaKucha and Klein Dytham architecture co-founder Mark Dytham has been training for over 8 months to run the 2014 Tokyo Marathon, but he's not running it just for his health. He's running an Indiegogo campaign to benefit the Home for All: an organization started by Pritzker Prize winning architect Toyo Ito set on building community centers in the disaster-ridden areas of Tohoku and Fukushima. All proceeds will go to the creation of a new community center, and the upkeep of the Home for All organization.
