AIA CDAT: San Diego, CA (1985)
This is the report of the Community Design Assistance Team (CDAT) visit to San Diego, California on July 12-14, 1985. The Normal Heights neighborhood was ravaged by the most destructive fire in San Diego's history on Sunday, June 30, 1985. Within 24 hours of the incident, efforts to rebuild began. The San Diego Chapter of the American Institute of Architects contacted community leaders and offered assistance. Created in 1967, the AIA’s R/UDAT program pioneered the modern charrette process by combining multi-disciplinary teams in dynamic, multi-day grassroots processes to produce community visions, action plans and recommendations.
