Reconstructing Communities After Conflict and Natural Disasters

This article has been written to share some observations about the potential role of urban design to contribute to this healing process. It identifies how Urban Design can help create the optimal circumstances for these communities to put their lives back together, come to terms with what has happened and have access to, as far as possible, the opportunities they need to get back on track, thrive and fulfil their potential.
