Building Better, Building Smarter – Opportunities for Design and Development
The Post-Sandy Initiative is structured as the planning and design community’s response to the recent Superstorm. Initiated by the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter (AIANY) and the AIANY’s Design for Risk and Reconstruction Committee (DfRR) in the weeks that followed the storm, and in collaboration with a wide range of other professional organizations and concerned individuals, it has been supported by the participation of a variety of local, regional, state, and national public agency participants.
