About this project

The exhibition and conference Resilience by Design at the United Nations will present work that addresses post-disaster architectural design. During the past year, the Open Design Academy has crowd-sourced projects for resilient schools and emergency shelters for the rebuilding of areas affected by natural disasters and wars. It collaborated both with global and local organizations, including Architecture for Humanity in Manila and various UN agencies. Using the online community, these solutions contribute to helping governments, the private sector, international organizations and foundations to accomplish their mission in building resilient architecture for some of the most vulnerable communities in the world.


Exhibition Space and Schedule

The OOAc exhibit Resilience by Design at the United Nation in New York will take place on the ground floor of the Secretariat building on December 1-12, 2014.
