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 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.

Teams spent months working with local governments and stakeholders to refine their proposals.  They will unveil their final work at this event.

At the end of the competition this 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.
