Securing Homeland: Rebounding/Rebuilding for a Sustainable Future

Presented by Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Programs


The panel, moderated by the curator, Margaret Mathews Berenson, will focus on innovative solutions to the problems of homelessness and displacement caused by catastrophic natural and manmade disasters that are dramatically presented visually in the works of art in the exhibition. Panelists will discuss innovative projects and proposals by artists, architects, non- profit organizations and government agencies around the world designed to provide housing for those in need. Among these are: post- Katrina housing in New Orleans and rebuilding efforts for victims of Hurricane Sandy in the New York area. Other topics of discussion will be: designing with sustainable materials; urban reclamation projects in Chicago, Houston and Detroit; collaborations between artists, urban design professionals and local communities; and social entrepreneurship in contemporary art and architecture. In conclusion, panelists together with audience participants will contribute ideas and recommendations for addressing these problems in the future. Handouts will include a list of organizations worldwide that provide meaningful solutions in the hopes that audience members might be inspired to assist them in meeting their goals. Brian Baer – Regional Program Coordinator, New York is the Regional Program Coordinator for Architecture for Humanity here in New York, where he is leading and managing the Hurricane Sandy Reconstruction program. He received his architecture degree from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC and is a LEED accredited professional and certified by NCARB. Baer has over 25 years’ experience of sustainable, community-aided design solutions for educational, cultural, civic and nongovernmental agency projects across the United States. He has collaborated with a wide variety of constituencies to bring consensus and success to the design and building process. Currently he is managing the ReNew NJ/NY Schools, ReStore the Shore, and authored the Resilience through Education and Design Centers programs. Cynthia Barton – Housing Recovery Program Manager is the Housing Recovery Program manager at the New York City Office of Emergency Management and Housing Recovery Program manager for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program. She holds a master of architecture from Yale, and was previously the managing director of Architecture for Humanity New York, and a contributing editor to the book, Design Like You Give a Damn: Architectural Solutions to Humanitarian Crises. Her disaster-relief work includes post-earthquake housing in India with Shigeru Ban and most recently overseeing the design and construction of a prototype for urban post- disaster housing in Brooklyn, NY. Deborah Gans, FAIA – Professor, Architecture School at Pratt Institute, and Principal, Gans Studio is Principal of Gans Studio and a professor of Architecture at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. The Gans Studio is known for its innovative “extreme housing” design prototypes for people displaced by homelessness, natural disasters and war. Their continuing work on alternative forms of shelters includes: disaster relief housing for Kosovo refugees; an interim housing system for the homeless commissioned by Common Ground; a community based planning and design project for post-Katrina New Orleans; and currently, a similar project in Sheepshead Bay post Super Storm Sandy. The Gans Studio prototype for a deployable Roll Out House (originally designed for refugee camps) was shown in Into the Open, an exhibition at the United States Pavilion in the 2008 Venice Biennial featuring civic-minded projects by contemporary architects. Among her many publications on landscapes of displacement are: Extreme Sites: Greening the Brownfield and essays in Beyond Shelter: Architecture and Human Dignity, Design Like You Give A Damn, and Expanding Architecture among others. She is a contributing editor for BOMB magazine and the Italian journal BOUNDARIES.
