Rob Lane (LF 2009) and Reese Fayde (LF 1979) will be working together on Rebuild by Design, the innovative HUD-sponsored initiative that is meant to change the way we think about rebuilding and resiliency.
As federal, state and local governments continue efforts to rebuild communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy, the Rebuild by Design competition, now entering its second stage, supports the development of transformative planning and design approaches to stimulate innovation, entrepreneurship, and green job creation.
Reese Fayde is with Interboro, one of the 10 winning teams, which was founded by GSD alums Dan D’Oca (design critic in urban planning and design) and Georgeen Theodore (MAUD '02).
Rob Lane is co-directing the effort at Regional Plan Association, which together with the Municipal Arts Society, the Van Alen Institute and the NYU Center for Public Knowledge, is leading Rebuild by Design with H.U.D. and the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force.
It is hoped that through analysis, community engagement, and the design and implementation of site-specific design interventions, Rebuild by Design will yield important lessons for the Sandy-affected region and other metropolitan areas across the country and beyond. Learn more about the initiative.
