"Ce n'était pas une catastrophe naturelle en Haïti", dit Peter Haas, membre de TED:" C'était une catastrophe due à l'ingénierie. Alors que le pays se reconstruit après le tremblement de terre fatal de janvier dernier, les mauvaises vieilles techniques de constructions sont-elles en train de créer une bombe à retardement ? Le groupe de Haas, AIDG, aide les bâtisseurs d'Haîti à apprendre les techniques modernes de construction et d'ingénierie, pour assembler un pays fort une brique après l'autre.
