Housing for Haitians

Andres Duany has designed a prefab house specifically for the victims of the Haitian earthquake. 1,000 of them are on their way to the island now.

From CNU: "Duany's "cabin," which can house up to eight individuals, incorporates many of these lessons and represents the newest developments in emergency housing.

This version incorporates improvements Duany made based on research in Haiti and consultations with sociologists and anthropologists. Instead of the first version's open, screened-in sides, this one has solid walls all around and windows with wooden shutters."
