The Role of Design and Architecture in Saving Haiti

This episode of DnA wonders whether design and architecture will be able to help Haiti revive itself.

Host Frances Anderton talks with architects and designers about the challenges facing Haiti and the potential impact of design on the damaged country.

"Haiti's catastrophe has killed thousands and destroyed Port-au-Prince, once a jewel in the Caribbean. We look at the architecture past, present and -- possibly -- future in Haiti's heart. Is there a design solution to the desperate need for low-cost housing in overpopulated cities? Can good design trump political mayhem? We hear from experts here and from Haiti: historian Patrick Sylvain, Architecture for Humanity's founder Cameron Sinclair, Global Green's Ted Bardacke, Alejandra Lillo, co-creator of Make It Right, and others."
