"Quello di Haiti non è stato un disastro naturale" afferma il TED Fellow Perter Hass: "E' stato un fallimento dell'ingegneria." Mentre il paese viene ricostruito dopo il mortale terremoto di gennaio, è possibile che le vecchie pratiche di costruzione edile stiano creando un'altra bomba a tempo? AIDG, il gruppo di Haas, aiuta i costruttori di Haiti ad imparare le moderne pratiche di costruzione, per ricostruire un paese forte, mattone su mattone.
