It is excruciating to me to watch the devastation in Haiti. The countless lives lost, the families shattered and a nation torn asunder. It is uplifting to see the worldwide response, but the questions remain: How can an entire nation be rebuilt from something like this? Roughly 20% of the country is now homeless. How does the world respond to something of this magnitude? How do you build permanent, safe housing for all those displaced survivors? I hope and pray that the architectural community and the construction industry is up to the job and that these people can have some modicum of dignity restored to their shattered world.
