Rebuild by Design is a multi-stage regional design competition that will develop innovative projects to protect and enhance Sandy-affected communities and broaden our understanding of disaster prevention. U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan, who also chairs the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force, launched the competition on June 20, 2013 in partnership with the Rockefeller Foundation with advice from the National Endowment for the Arts and in collaboration with the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University, Municipal Art Society of New York, Regional Plan Association, and Van Alen Institute.

"The ten teams we selected stood out because of the talent they bring to the table, their pioneering ideas and their commitment to innovating with a purpose and competing not just to design but to build something," said Secretary Donovan. "The projects that come out of this competition will save lives and protect communities in this region and - as the Task Force will emphasize in the Rebuilding Strategy to be released in the coming weeks - serve as models as we prepare communities across the country for the impacts of a changing climate.”

The organizers received proposals from over 140 potential teams from more than 15 countries. The ten selected design teams will now participate in an intense eight-month process broken into two distinct stages: analysis and design.
