Rebuild by Design
Rebuild by Design was created to administer the Rebuild by Design Competition after Hurricane Sandy. The competition was designed to challenge Sandy-affected communities to rebuild in ways that would build their physical, social, economic, and environmental resilience. Rebuild By Design helps communities reimagine solutions for today’s large-scale, complex problems.
Rebuild by Design convenes a mix of sectors - including government, business, non-profit, and community organizations - to gain a better understanding of how overlapping environmental and human-made vulnerabilities leave cities and regions at risk. Rebuild by Design’s core belief is that through collaboration, communities can grow stronger and be better prepared stand up to future challenges.
Through a partnership with 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) and with support from the Rockefeller Foundation, Rebuild by Design’s collaborative research and design approach is helping cities around the globe achieve resilience. Rebuild by Design is also helping New York, New Jersey, and New York City implement projects developed through the Rebuild by Design competition after Hurricane Sandy.
