Humanitarian Architecture

 Why is it Relevant in a Post-Covid World?

Never has the demand been so urgent for architects to respond to the design and planning challenges of rebuilding post-disaster sites and cities. In 2019, more people were displaced by natural disasters than by wars and armed conflicts. And yet the number of architects equipped to deal with rebuilding the aftermath of these floods, fires, earthquakes, typhoons, and tsunamis is chronically short.

This webinar will discuss the expanding role of architects in designing projects for communities after a disaster and what is the role of design in a post-covid world.
