Two members of the Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group explain their different approach on reconstruction after a disaster
12 April, 2010. In the days and weeks following the January 12th earthquake, relief organizations and redevelopment efforts swarmed into Haiti—fueled by the immediacy to rescue survivors and develop temporary living scenarios.
Now, with the disaster out of the headlines and the rainy season looming, opinions and direction are swirling as to "how" to construct a new Haiti. Will social venture prevail? How will the Haitian community be justly represented? How can the cycle of poverty be reversed and a more self-sufficient economy nurtured? Cameron Sinclair, co-founder of Architecture for Humanity, and Peter Haas, founder of Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group [AIDG], explain their perspectives, fears and truths surrounding the epic redevelopment effort.
