Urban Villages to Rise from the Rubble of Haiti
Robert Steuteville writes about the rebuilding after a news briefing from Andres Duany from Port au Prince:
"The plan envisions a rebuilt government center around the presidential palace with civic/administrative buildings, museums, concert halls, schools and green spaces. A form-based code aims to ensure that new buildings are designed with pedestrian-friendly frontages. The historic street grid is retained with new small parks on street corners that "come together to form complete squares of tremendous elegance," explains planner and architect Andres Duany."
