Henk Ovink has transformed the way communities affected by continuing threats of flooding respond to change and how architects and city planners rebuilt their cities after flooding disasters. Both Henk Ovink and OMA are involved in the post-Hurricane Sandy rebuild in the United States through the ‘Rebuild by Design’ competition. In this event Reinier de Graaf (Partner at OMA) and Henk Ovink (Special Envoy for International Water Affairs for the Kingdom of the Netherlands) discuss with Ricky Burdett the challenges and approaches of rebuilding critical infrastructure in areas prone to flooding and their engagement with communities.
Supported by The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. This event is part of the exhibition 'Creation from Catastrophe – How Architecture Rebuilds Communities'.
