Event Details

Come Join HUD’s Rebuild by Design public conversation workshop to share your thoughts and ideas!

Rebuild by Design is a multi-stage regional design competition that will develop innovative approaches to enhancing resiliency in Hurricane Sandy–affected communities. The competition is looking to learn from direct experience, local perspective, and citizen insights as communities across the region begin to rebuild and renew.

Ten international teams of designers and resiliency professionals are now embarking on an eight-month research and design process that will generate innovative planning and design approaches to the region’s post-Sandy challenges. Join us at a series of public meetings held throughout New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, where neighbors and community leaders will play a crucial role in helping shape competition priorities and outcomes.

At each regional meeting, we invite you to share your experiences and ideas for your community with the participating teams. Your on-the-ground perspective will help Rebuild by Design develop appropriate solutions that respond to local and regional needs.

Join our public meeting in Asbury Park, NJ:

Wednesday, September 18

About Rebuild by Design

Last August, the President’s Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force announced the selection of ten multidisciplinary design teams to participate in Rebuild by Design, a unique competition that responds to Hurricane Sandy by asking the world’s most talented design professionals to envision solutions that increase resilience across the Sandy-affected region.

These teams, who will now proceed to the competition’s research and design development stages, were selected from more than 140 applicants representing the top engineering, architecture, design, landscape architecture, and planning firms as well as research institutes and universities worldwide.

Your personal experiences related to Hurricane Sandy's impact on your neighborhood and the events that followed will serve as essential underpinning for the teams' research and design. The competition’s goal is to conceive and execute resilient recovery projects in our region that are both fundable and achievable with the purpose of rethinking how we build our cities and towns.

A three-month research and analysis process is underway to identify key design opportunities in the region. At the end of the competition next spring, the resulting proposals will be evaluated by an expert jury, and winning design solutions may be able to be implemented with disaster recovery grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, as well as other sources of public and private-sector funding.

About Rebuild by Design

Rebuild by Design marshals the talent of the world to answer a region’s greatest needs. Using an innovative process based on the design competition model, Rebuild by Design places local communities and civic leaders at the heart of a robust, interdisciplinary creative process to generate implementable solutions for a more resilient region.

Originally launched in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Rebuild by Design has generated ten groundbreaking designs to enhance resilience throughout the Northeast US. Rebuild by Design keeps community coalitions connected to the process; explores changes needed in policy, regulation, and operations; and researches the best practices in developing resilience as it helps other regions rethink resilience before disaster strikes.

Through a partnership with 100 Resilient Cities (100RC), Rebuild by Design is bringing its best-in-class design and research-driven processes to more cities around the globe, working to build their long-term resilience. This partnership works to scale Rebuild by Design’s successes from the northeast U.S. to cities around the globe.
