Haiti: Preserving Architectural History

Throwing Down the Water is concerned that “the historical houses of Haiti are mostly being left to rot, to fall into disrepair or – worse – to be lived in happily and well, until some landlord comes along and decides that a cement box would look better in their place and, with no law, organization or advocacy groups to stop him, comes in with sledgehammers and knocks down in one morning 120 years of history that is never going to be able to be replaced.”
