Ben Stiller Rebuilds Schools in Haiti – Print : Architectural Digest

The actor is helping to reshape the country’s future with access to education and basic necessities Text by Mayer Rus

ctor/director Ben Stiller first visited Haiti with the international aid organization Save the Children in the summer of 2009, roughly six months before the cataclysmic earthquake that devastated the struggling nation. Even then the country’s poverty and desperation were unfathomable. “There’s no way you can’t be affected by the place,” Stiller says. “Going to the central plateau, where living conditions are so hard and basic services are as scarce

as in the most undeveloped parts of Africa, was profoundly moving.” After that trip, he launched StillerStrong, an online campaign to fund the reconstruction of Save the Children’s Cévérine Community School on the outskirts of Maissade. “Education is one of the keys to ending the vicious cycle of global poverty,” Stiller explains. “And in Haiti schools become centers for access to water, food, and other basic needs.” The initiative, which garnered $350,000, involved the production of a series of comedic videos starring the likes of Conan O’Brien, Owen Wilson, Robert De Niro, and former president Bill Clinton.

In the wake of the 2010 earthquake, Stiller furthered his philanthropic efforts by establishing the Stiller Foundation, with the goal of assisting children worldwide. The organization began the Haitian School Initiative to rebuild crippled institutions and their communities. In partnership with Architecture for Humanity, the program helped resurrect two badly damaged facilities—the École la Dignité in Cayes de Jacmel and the Collège Mixte le Bon Berger in Montrouis—and is currently working on the École Baptiste Bon Berger in Port-auA classroom at the new Institution Scolaire Muspan in Port-au-Prince.

Stiller’s organization has also teamed with the Digicel Foundation, the charitable arm of the Caribbean mobile-phone company, to create eight new school buildings (four have been completed so far). The scope of the work is extensive, from earthquake-resistant structural design to water-catchment systems. As with the other efforts, local workers are employed for the construction, and the edifices incorporate bright colors that embody a message of hope. “Connecting with people is the most satisfying aspect of this work,” Stiller says. “The task can seem daunting, but when you see the effect even a little effort produces, it becomes incredibly energizing.” thestillerfoundation.org 1/25/2014 Ben Stiller Rebuilds Schools in Haiti – Print : Architectural Digest http://www.architecturaldigest.com/architecture/2013-03/stiller-foundation-ben-stiller-haiti-earthquake-schools.print

This studio asks us to consider: “what should be the ambition of architecture in a time when the earth’s lithospheric and geoclimatic condition has been so fundamentally reshaped by human intervention as to necessitate the definition of a new geologic era, recently proposed to be called the Anthropocene?” Rather than fight the losing battle of preservation, this building and its program has to create new systems, new landscapes,and new ecologies - complete with us and our built environment/ technology as a part of it.

Reinforcing the reef

Sea Wall

On a macro-level, our building is situated in the Salt River Bay as a sea wall - functioning to control incoming oceanic and wind surges. This reinforces the work of the reef and sea-grass and creates a buffered zone in the bay... The building is made of three components—a ten thousand year wall, a mobile and performative roof-scape, and a series of programs that are anchored to the wall. The wall aspires to permanence and is carved to service near term occupation and to stage future possibilities. Its porosity is intended to produce multiple biological and social activities... By immersing the researchers and visitors in the middle of the ocean, they are located in extreme proximity to the organisms they are studying and observing. This fosters a live/work facility which can be dynamic, and be an incubator for radical scientific breakthrough.
