Interview with MSF Architect Paul Cabrera

By November 9, 2011 Blog, Featured

Our interview this week features our latest guest professor, Paul Cabrera, an architect from Mexico who works for Medecins Sans Fronteres (Doctors Without Borders) in their Spanish headquarters in Barcelona. As the technical referent for construction and relief, Paul oversees the construction and rehabilitation process of any facilities in the places where MSF-Spain conducts their emergency operations.

The objective of the workshop was to give our students the tools necessary to effectively plan the site for displacement camps in different scenarios, follow the correct steps to create emergency setups, and participate actively in emergency situations through water and sanitation activities.
