Damaged Designs in Haiti

By Stacy Straczynski, Associate Editor

Among all the reports around the Web covering the destruction from the earthquake in Haiti, I came across this list on archiplanet.org that relays specific damage to buildings and landmarks:

Landmarks and Damaged Buildings of Port-au-Prince, Haiti

  • Port-au-Prince Cathedral – Major damage
  • Presidential Palace – Major damage and partial collapse
  • Saint Louis Roi de France Church – Major damage and partial collapse
  • Hotel Oloffson
  • St. Esprit Hospital
  • United Nations Headquarters – Collapsed 5 story building, 10 rescued, over 100 feared dead
  • Villa Creole Hospital – Still standing
  • Montana Hotel
  • Toussaint L'Overture Airport – Collapsed control tower. Runways functional. Air traffic control may be provided by U.S. Coast Guard cutter.
  • Université d'État d'Haïti (UEH)
  • Port-au-Prince U.S Embassy

It seems that the list is being updated as new information comes in. Please share with us any news that you find. Be a part of the relief effort, which Contract Magazine editor in chief Jennifer Busch blogged about earlier today, by donating to Architecture for Humanity.

  1. Poor Haiti with there giant earthquake. I wonder how much reconstruction they have to do. The only reconstruction I have to do is new carpet. Carpet is like the foundation to your house it is like the most important part. Salt Lake carpet is so awesome because they give quality and inexpensive carpeting jobs.
