'Rebuild by Design (RBD) was developed for the 'Presidential
Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force' after hurricane Sandy hit the
North-East Coast of the United States in 2012. Using an innovative,
design-driven process based on the design competition model. 'RBD'
places local communities and civic leaders at the heart of a robust,
interdisciplinary creative process to generate implementable solutions
for a more resilient region. This book aims to reflect 'RBD', assess all
its aspects, and embed it in a broader context to offer a guide for
politicians, designers, researchers, activists, and others.
