Haiti-Habitat: Call for Collaborative Design

Since the devastating earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, a huge outpouring of humanitarian aid has been directed towards the country. However, the transition from relief to reconstruction has been slow. In an effort to support this rebuilding effort, Haiti Habitat announces this Call for Collaborative Design, which will provide vernacular housing prototypes for construction across the various environments that compose Haiti's landscape.
