[2014 June] Haiti Challenge Studio Trip

LinkThe Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), Howard University, School of Architecture and Design with the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, School of Architecture to lead a public-interest design education and service-learning project in Petite-Rivière-de-Nippes, Haiti. With support from the Fetzer Institute, the 2014 Haiti Summer Studio is the continuation of the “2011 Haiti Idea Challenge” where we were asked to design permanent solutions to rebuild the infrastructure, cities, and neighborhoods affected by the 2010 earthquake. The challenges include designing and building a media resource center in an area without running water or electricity and using designs that can be built by local residents themselves.


As a critical way for observation in Haiti, the Haiti Challenge Studio use water color as the tool to observe and measure the information.
