Building in Haiti – The Structural Details

John Thomsen and Brian Twomey, the structural engineers from Simpsom Gumpertz and Hager, and I wrote an article on the challenges of building in Haiti from a structural persepctive.  It was published in Structural Engineer Magazine.  Since a few of you might be behind on your subscription to that trendy mag, here is the link to the article.  As technical articles go, this is not too deep, but then again, it is not People Magazine.


About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog,, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
