Learning from New Orleans: Making It Right in the Lower 9th Ward

William McDonough + Partners’ Katherine Grove and KieranTimberlake’s Richard Maimon talk about Cradle to Cradle and Make It Right in a new Metropolis POV blog post. Some excerpts:

Grove: “The Make It Right organization has been consistently committed to honoring that community engagement in a significant, ongoing way. That is just one element of what I would call a constant layering of collaboration throughout the process.”

Maimon: “The striking thing about Make It Right is that its goals are so much greater than ‘provide shelter.’ The entire effort was founded on making a neighborhood for the people who had lost everything. This is not just about buildings and the materials that go into them, but it is also about people and how they live in a place.”
