Get your own tornado-proof home?

As we’ve seen in the past, tornados can level and devastate entire communities. Architects and designers have been working to create a tornado-proof home that still maintains its livability and looks like a proper house. The “Designing Recovery” competition assigned the task of creating a tornado-proof home that people would actually want to live in. Sponsored by the American Institute of Architects, Make it Right, the St. Bernard Project and Architecture for Humanity, the winning designs will be constructed in the areas devastated by recent storms—Joplin, Missouri, New Orleans and New York.
