EVENT: Student Lunchtime Lecture: Rebuilding the Iron Market in Haiti
A lunch time talk and discussion for students
10 May 2011; 1:00- 2:00 pm

with Pauline Nee

John McAslan + Partners led an international multi-disciplinary team which resurrected the Iron Market, one of the most significant cultural and historic architectural landmarks in Haiti. The scheme conserved or repaired key historic details, using iron salvaged from the previously burnt down north market wherever possible. Its renewal has involved hundreds of local artisans and artists in tasks such as conservation of the ironwork, decorative metalwork, stone dressing, and bricklaying.

The restored Iron Market opened one year after the earthquake, in January 2011. It has had an immediate impact on restoring the community's resources and changing the conditions in which people live and is a testament to how architecture can work within communities to deliver lasting change.

This lunch time talk and discussion will explain the process and provide an opportunity for students to review the value of carrying out such rehabilitation projects.

Pauline Nee leads the Historic Building team at John McAslan + Partners and was Heritage Advisor on the rebuilding of the Iron Market.
