MIT @ Arcahaie ~ Sustainable Village, Haiti-Style!

Ron Fletcher writes in the Globe about Lifting the poor with sustainable design: MIT architect aids village in Haiti. MIT Architecture Professor (and RISD alum) Jan Wampler is collaborating with the wonderful Haitian community organizer Gerthy Lahens -- co-founder of MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition D-Track Grand Prize Winner Bagazo, the agriwaste charcoal fuels company -- on designs for Haitian villages which are not only sustainable, but beautiful and affordable, and with what Gerthy calls "a little Haitian style"!
