Questions about the role of architects in disaster recovery have been circulating since the Indian Ocean tsunami killed more than 200,000 people in 2004. Ninety-eight percent of victims of natural disasters are in the developing world, but no one is immune as extreme temperatures, flooding and droughts expose vast numbers to the experience of the eco-refugee.
Beyond Shelter features 25 generously illustrated reports from all over the world. Written by the founders of some of the world’s most provocative architecture and engineering firms, nonprofit companies and research centres and leaders of such prominent organizations as the Red Cross, UN-Habitat and the World Wildlife Fund, they demonstrate that evolving risk requires new ways of thinking, and that architects have a leading role to play.
Marie J. Aquilino is a professor of architectural history at the École Spéciale d’Architecture (ESA) in Paris and is developing a program to train architecture students to work in contexts of extreme need in the developing world. Aquilino is collaborating with the International Federation of the Red Cross to set up a working group on the reconstruction of Haiti, and serves as associate program director of the BaSiC Initiative.
