Eric Cesal is a designer, educator, writer and noted post-disaster expert.  He has been called “Architecture’s First Responder” by The Daily Beast for his work leading Architecture for Humanity’s post-disaster programs from 2010 to 2014. On this edition of This Is DesignIntelligence, he talks about the red thread running through his multi-faceted career, the event that caused him to realize the true power of design, and how, with good design strategies, architects can design the disaster out of extreme natural phenomena.
