(Un)Earthing Tustin team's encounter with local enthusiasm is far from an isolated incident. Ex-base redevelopment presents the kind of mutual benefits communities, designers and cities managing these properties are allowed to discover through the framework of Competition.

Darren Gill, Architecture for Humanity's Haiti Program Manager, relates impacts on our work:
