Discussion About Builders Without Borders in Haiti

Bay area architect Martin Hammer and civil engineer Henri Mannik will present and discuss their work for Builders Without Borders in Haiti, where a prototype of their straw bale building design was completed in March.  It utilizes rice straw, bamboo, earth, recycled rubble, and salvaged wood, along with efficiently-placed steel and Portland cement to create a resilient and durable building system for Haiti.
