“Building Momentum in Post-Recovery Haiti”

“By working with a specific client, creating a site-specific, situation-specific solution, and discussing safe design methods we have acquired from our professional practices, we can change the dialog in approaching the reconstruction process. Bringing momentum through design isn’t about initiating a new agenda for change, but it’s about sharing safe building practices to propel projects for freedom.”
