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.
