On May 20, 2013, Moore, Oklahoma, was rocked by one of the most devastating tornadoes in United States History. Dozens have died in an F-4 strength storm in its 2-mile wide path of destruction through the suburban community. After relief and recovery efforts are ended, Moore will be facing a gargauntuan need to rebuild permanently and more resiliently. Working with a network of local professionals and universities, we will engage Moore and their surrounding area in their needs to rebuild
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Hundreds of homes, several schools and dozens of lives were lost to one of the most disastrous tornadoes in United States history. The suburban community of Moore will need to rebuild. Disaster insurance will not cover all reconstruction and design services needed for a healthy recovery.
How will this project solve this problem?
Architecture for Humanity works with under served communities post-disaster to rebuild resources that would not otherwise garner appropriate attention or support. These spaces include community centers, youth centers, public sports facilities and centers for the elderly.
Potential Long Term Impact
Community hubs are safe, resilient public spaces that double as resources for recovering communities.
