Rebuilding lives, not just homes

Cameron Sinclair, the co-founder of Architecture for Humanity and the Open Architecture Network, has an interesting take on what architects must do in response to the earthquake in Haiti. The Zweig Letter has touched on some of the ideas for rebuilding the decimated Haitian landscape, with more perspectives to come in the Feb. 15 issue -- and many more, to be sure. Sinclair's take is this is not the time for trying something new.

What do you think about his opinion? Would you rather see tried and true methods used in Haiti or do you see this as an opportunity to be creative, innovative, bold, and cutting-edge? Will you be part of the effort?
