Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Disaster Recovery & Regeneration
In January 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, reducing houses, businesses and public buildings to rubble. We were given the unique and solemn opportunity by the Haitian authorities to participate in the reconstruction of the historic centre of Port-au-Prince.
Working alongside Duany Plater-Zyberk and Company (DPZ) we developed a plan using public consultation workshops. These took place in early 2011 and involved intense design work alongside meetings with members of government, developers, residents and other stakeholders over several days.
