Iron Market
Built in 1891, the Iron Market was one of Haiti's most important civic landmarks. Severely damaged by a 2008 fire and the 2010 earthquake, the Market structure was rebuilt and restored by the practice and re-opened by President Bill Clinton in 2011, exactly one year after the earthquake.  The project required a multi-disciplinary team including many local artisans and was an extreme test of design, research, materials sourcing and logistics.  Key historic details were restored, where possible, and new elements were engineered to meet current seismic requirements.  The restored Iron Market is now a symbol of Haiti's endurance and the long process of the country's physical recovery.
