Haiti is still struggling to rebuild its infrastructure three years after being struck by a devastating earthquake. The nation is also challenged by deforestation and a workforce that lacks skill and resources, so it is looking towards towards green architecture to help create shelters. Foster + Partners and the Architectural Association have awarded AA Diploma student John Naylor with the 2013 Foster + Partners Prize for his “Bamboo Lakou” project, which proposes a series of earthquake-resistant structures that shift the construction sector away from energy-intensive materials such as concrete while aiding in rehabilitating vegetation.
