The product of more than two years of research, Haiti Now is a comprehensive resource of culture, history and the built environment.
The Now Institute has been involved in Haiti since 2011. After completing a design for the Make It Right foundation as well as urban design proposal for the city of New Orleans, The Now Institute was invited to Haiti look for potential projects for urban design and renewal. To understand the demanding challenges of spatial understanding and design in Haiti, The Now Institute started with an immense amount of research that has been transformed into a 732 visual almanac titled “Haiti Now”. It is our hope that this book can provide a foundation of knowledge and understanding of Haiti and many issue of development to unite a broad collection of scholars and professionals including planners, developers, aid workers, artists, political entities and cultural investigators.
“Haiti Now” includes a foreword by The Right Honorable Michaëlle Jean.and contributions by former Haitian Prime Minister Michèle Pierre-Louis, Frederick Mangones, Kesner Pharel, Jean W. Wiener, Nadege T. Clitandre, Nathalie Jolivert, Herve Sabin, and Iwan Baan.
