Comments Off on INTERVIEW: With Bridgette Meinhold, Author of ‘Urgent Architecture’

When Inhabitat design writer ,  Bridgette Meinhold , heard about the earthquake in Haiti in 2010 and the massive devastation it caused, she wanted to help, and was drawn to start investigating different options for temporary shelters and disaster relief housing. This exploration gradually broadened to a larger focus on design for disaster-preparedness ; seeking out what type of shelters can best withstand earthquakes, hurricanes, rising sea levels and tornados. Now I’m thrilled to say that after years of research, Bridgette has just published an incredible new book entitled Urgent Architecture: 40 Sustainable Housing Solutions for a Changing World . Urgent Architecture showcases inspiring and innovative ideas for resilient design – design that will withstand the test of time – surviving climate change, rising sea levels, manmade and natural disasters . I recently had a chance to interview Bridgette about her new book at Inhabitat HQ in NYC , and she gave me some fascinating insight into her inspiration for the book, the impact  climate change  will have on future housing and what she believes is necessary to create a more sustainable and responsive built landscape. Watch the video above for the interview, and if you want to learn more, you can get your own copy of Urgent Architecture here . A full transcript of the interview with pics is available after the jump. Read the rest of INTERVIEW: With Bridgette Meinhold, Author of ‘Urgent Architecture’
