Progress in Haiti

Back in 2010 Malvaney ran a post entitled Paying it forward to Haiti.  Recently Architectural Record posted an article regarding the restoration of the Iron Market in Port-au-Prince, Haiti which, once you’ve seen the images of the structure after the earthquake, proves that if you have the right mind-set any structure can be saved.  The article has some amazing images and video, along with Haitians’ responses about why the iron market is important to them.  Good progress has been made but things are a long way from back to normal.

    • It seems that most of the damage to the Iron Market was to, and caused by later additions and alterations. That was the case with a lot of buildings during Katrina.
