Article source: trans_city TC ZT gmbh

Over the last 18 months, Christian Aulinger, Mark Gilbert and Georg Kogler of trans_city architecture and urbanism have developed a comprehensive plan for the reconstruction of Jacmel, Haiti based upon the concept of satellite cities located at the edge of the existing, earthquake-ravaged city center. (A concept developed in accordance with the universal design principals of the Housing Reconstruction Framework of the Haitian Government).

The concept includes an urban masterplan, and a proposal for prefabricated houses, in which the building shell is industrially manufactured in Austria, and finished by local hand workers.

Consistent with the content of the project, the architecture does not attempt to be spectacular or extravagant. Rather, it is the holistic integration of total urban system that makes this project interesting.
