Architecture for Humanity co-founder Kate Stohr was just interviewed on the BBC/PRI radio show The World, talking about the role of architects and design in the response to disasters (WMA). Katrina and New Orleans are certainly foremost in the conversation, but Kate also touches on some of the previous AfH efforts, including the post-tsunami work.
"You can't rebuild the past. You can't. We have no choice but to look forward and to rethink New Orleans as a new city... New Orleans was a gift, it was an architectural gift, so what kind of gift and legacy are we going to leave to future generations?"
