The Katrina Cottage: What good design can do.

October 29th, 2006

I had missed Slate’s story in March on the Katrina Cottage, so I was happy to come across this post about the design at Inhabitat. Marianne Cusato’s design for charming and dignified frame cottages to take the place of ugly FEMA trailers — at the same price! — shows what a good designer can do in the face of a real design challenge.

(Inhabitat, by the way, is quickly turning into a regular destination for me. It seems tilted toward a female audience, but I love it’s blend of environmentalism with design sensibility. There’s no reason for the two to be mutually exclusive.)
