After the initial devastation of a natural disaster comes the long process of rebuilding communities in the affected areas. In this evening symposium, SPUR welcomes a few San Francisco natives to talk about their recent disastery recovery efforts and plans in Haiti. Kate Stohr of Architecture for Humanity, a nonprofit design services firm, will talk about their involvement in the struggling nation's long-term recovery. They will be joined by Mary Comerio, Professor of Architecture at UC Berkeley, who spent two weeks in Haiti assessing damage, coordinating with other agencies and advising on transitional housing. The discussion will be moderated by SPUR Board Member Laurie Johnson, a disaster planning consultant with experience in Kobe, New Orleans, Grand Forks and other cities worldwide.
