What re:ground is and what it does

Our focus is finding ways to involve everyday people deeply in climate adaptation and community resilience through the integration of natural systems and built environments.

Re:ground llc was first established in 2013 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and was incorporated later that year in the United States in order to enter the Rebuild by Design competition.

I began re:ground because my background in architecture – while critical to understanding the world from the technical viewpoint of buildings – became limiting in scope. The challenges I faced while working in post-earthquake Haiti touched on the need to consider issues of ecology, governance, and planning; I returned to school to deepen my knowledge and broaden my horizons, and am excited to pursue work in new avenues.
