The team worked with corporate partners to reconstruct Ecole Nationale Jacob Martin Henriquez, which serves more than 400 K-7 grade students who could not otherwise afford primary education. Team members traveled to Jacmel in the wake of the earthquake to learn more about the unique set of design parameters, eventually proposing a simple, single-story design that could be constructed by local builders. Everything from construction materials to furniture were sourced within Haiti to promote local growth and the design focused on a cost-effective approach in order to allow for replication throughout the region. The construction process was also used as a learning tool to teach local engineers about creating buildings capable of withstanding future disasters. i munity and define the future. Rebuilding this school has been such a fulfilling experience for our team, and enables us to live up to the social responsibility we have as architects and designers.” NILA LEISEROWITZ, FASID, MANAGING PRINCIPAL, GENSLER Interior Impact is an ongoing feature of pro bono projects by ASID members participating in The 1% program.
