Who We Are
Rebuild by Design began as a competition seeking to address the structural and social vulnerabilities exposed by Superstorm Sandy. It has connected the talent of the world with the talent of the region to propose innovative and implementable large-scale, design-driven infrastructure solutions. As a result of Rebuild by Design, HUD has awarded $930 million towards making these projects a reality.
Now, Rebuild by Design is working to assist in the implementation of these designs, advocating for needed policy changes, continuing its research initiatives and engaging the its community coalitions, while working towards replicating solutions to ensure resiliency in the Sandy region and beyond.

Rebuild by Design’s unique process and innovative resilience solutions are headed to Berlin. The Aedes Archicture Forum is highlighting RBD’s approach to resilience in a new exhibition and symposium, part of the ANCB program “Phoenix Reloaded: Rethinking Disaster Responses, Preparedness and Prevention,” which seeks to draw out lessons from past catastrophes and stimulate a new vision for the future of disaster management and preparedness.
