Helping to rebuild Haiti
27 January 2011
A team of UCL architects, engineers and students
pooled their expertise to build a primary school and community-centre complex
in earthquake-stricken Haiti in 2010.
Philosophy research student Linda
O'Halloran set the project up with the help of the UCL Development Planning
Unit and was supported by a grant made possible by UCL alumni donations.
Linda collaborated with other UCL students and staff, industry mentors, and Haitian colleagues to re-develop a site in central Port-au-Prince that had been destroyed during the Haitian disaster.
The Centre Rosalie
Javouhey includes a primary school, an adult education centre, a community
kitchen and canteen, a multi-functional community space, and an urban garden
The final result was a disaster-resistant,
eco-friendly, sustainable housing complex, which embodies local knowledge and cutting-edge design. You can read more about Linda’s work
