O colaborador TED Peter Haas diz que "O Haiti não foi um desastre natural, foi um desastre de engenharia." Enquanto o país recupera depois do terramoto mortal de janeiro, será que as más práticas de construção estão a criar outra bomba-relógio? O grupo de Haas, AIDG, está a ajudar os construtores no Haiti a aprenderem técnicas modernas de construção e engenharia de modo a criar um país mais forte, tijolo a tijolo.
