April 12, 2016
7:00 pm – 8:45 pm

The Architecture Gallery, RIBA
66 Portland Place
London, W1B 1AD
United States

As part of RIBA’s Creation from Catastrophe: How Architecture Rebuilds Communities, join Special Envoy for International Water Affairs for the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Henk Ovink,  OMA’s Reinier de Graaf and Amy Chester, Managing Director, Rebuild by Design, discuss new ways to cohabitate with water with Ricky Burdett, Professor of Urban Studies, LSE.

Henk Ovink has transformed the way communities affected by continuing threads of flooding respond to change and how architects and city planners rebuilt their cities after flooding disasters. Both Henk Ovink and OMA are involved in the post-Hurricane Sandy rebuild in the United States through  the ‘Rebuild by Design’ competition.

In this event  Reinier de Graaf (Partner at OMA) and Henk Ovink (Special Envoy for International Water Affairs for the Kingdom of the Netherlands) discuss with Ricky Burdett the challenges and approaches of rebuilding critical infrastructure in areas prone to flooding and their engagement with communities.

Rebuild by Design will be on view from March 7-April 28, 2016 at RIBA as part of this exhibition.
