Miami architect Andres Duany has started to envision what a sustainable house, built for the hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the Haiti earthquake, might look like. Duany's firm, Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, works not only on specific architectural designs but also urban planning and situation-specific approaches to building. He says there is a specific process necessary in order to design and build structures that will effectively help people in disaster areas.
