The Good Stuff

The 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami was one of the worst natural catastrophes in history. While international attention has faded, post-tsunami challenges continue to have an impact on affected communities. In the winter of 2010/2011, Christoph Draeger and Heidrun Holzfeind took a three-month trip to the five countries most affected – Thailand, Aceh/Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Maldives and India – to investigate the current state of architecture built or reconstructed in the aftermath of the tsunami. "Tsunami Architecture" documents the long-term effects of the disaster through conversations with survivors, eyewitnesses, aid workers and rescue personnel. “The Maldives Chapter Redux” looks specifically at how the flood of aid money has transformed whole islands, rebuilt and refashioned local economies and shaped communities on three islands in the Maldives.
