Peter Yeadon has been invited to participate in Build.Found.Haiti, a collaborative effort in New York City that has been organized to help rebuild part of devastated Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Peter is one of thirteen professionals from a variety of disciplines that have been asked work on a range of problems, from planning and infrastructure to buildings. Their projects include a few schools, a church, playgrounds, housing and medical facilities.
Beginning with tomorrow’s launch at New York’s Center for Architecture, the team will work on these projects over the next four days (May 14-17). On Monday, the participants will present their results to the design community and general public for comments and critiques. The initiative is being sponsored by The American Society of Landscape Architects, the American Institute for Architects New York Chapter, Engineers without Borders, Habitat for Humanity International, Partners in Health, Partners in Agriculture, Haiti Outreach Mission, and a growing list of NGOs with on-the-ground presence in Haiti.
