Rebuilding Haiti
Slide Shows
The Ravaged City
Months after the devastating January 12 earthquake, much of Port-au-Prince remains in shambles. We present a series of snapshots taken throughout the shattered city.


Mountain Living
Many earthquake refugees are migrating to rural areas. To get a sense of what life is like outside of Port-au-Prince, we traveled into the mountains one day to visit a family.


The Housing Crisis
The January 12 earthquake reportedly destroyed 100,000 homes, with another 200,000 left damaged. Today, more than a million Haitians remain homeless. We take a look at various housing problems and solutions. With hurricane season fast approaching, the need for shelter is becoming more urgent by the day.

"La Cabanon" Housing
Architect Andrés Duany explains one of the prefab homes his firm has designed to house Haitians displaced by January's earthquake.

Day in the Life: Architecture for Humanity
In April, AFH invited RECORD to spend a day with its team in Haiti. Here, we speak with designers Eric Cesal and Schendy Kernizan and visit an expansive refugee camp on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince.

Habitat for Humanity Experiments
Architect Robert Busser, a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in Haiti, explains the transitional shelters he designed.

Life at the Epicenter
We visit Lťog‚ne, a coastal city that was at the epicenter of the deadly January 12 earthquake.

Haitian Refugees At Risk
Of the hundreds of refugee camps, the flood risk is most extreme at the Petionville Golf Club camp. ENRís Tom Sawyer reports.

Yves Francois
After decades of practicing architecture in New York, Yves Francois returned to his native Haiti in 2009, determined to improve the countryís building practices. Today, he runs ECOFRA, an architecture and construction firm based in Port-au-Prince. Francois speaks candidly about his experience working in Haiti.
