We recently completed short documentary about Rebuild By Design, an architecture competition created in response to Hurricane Sandy. Ten architectural teams were chosen to create proposals to respond to rising sea levels in vulnerable areas in the Sandy region. RBD was spurred by the President’s Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force, and developed in concert with private philanthropic organizations such as The Rockefeller Foundation. This short piece tells the story of why this work is necessary and a bit about the people who do it.
Visually, we were tasked with making a film about hurricane season during the winter months. Though some warm weather shots did make it into the cut, it was just as fun to see such a strong amount of activity on the ocean and rivers during cold weather.
