When the earth shook in Haiti, thousands of buildings collapsed. Here in Washington, earthquakes are unlikely, but our homes and offices are susceptible to other natural disasters. Hurricane winds, freezing groundwater and local wildlife can wreak havoc of their own. Kojo and architect Roger Lewis explore the ways we design and build to withstand the ravages of “Mother Nature.”

Guests

  • Roger Lewis Architect; Columnist, "Shaping the City," Washington Post; and Professor Emeritus of Architecture, University of Maryland College Park
