"O Haiti não foi um desastre natural," diz o TED Fellow Peter Haas: "Foi um desastre de engenharia." Enquanto o país é reconstruído após o catastrófico abalo em janeiro, as más práticas de construções criariam outra bomba-relógio? O grupo de Haas, AIDG (Grupo de Desenvolvimento de Arquitetura Apropriada), está ajudando os construtores a aprenderem práticas modernas de construção e engenharia, para montar um país forte, tijolo a tijolo.
