Among the 24/7 coverage of the recent devastation triggered by an earthquake in Haiti, I’ve begun to hear something promising – talk of the opportunity to design and rebuild the “right” way a city which was flattened. On this topic I wonder what is considered the “right” way. Does it include all the new bells and whistles of an emerging regenerative society, or just the bare minimum of what is considered standard in industrialized nations (therefore better than what Haiti has had)? I realize that somebody has to pay for whatever goes in, but it appears that the U.S. will be the most likely candidate for this. If this is done using our best available understanding of regenerative practices, Port-au-Prince could be a model for future urban redevelopment. What role can companies like Biohabitats play in working to push toward that goal of regenerative design?
