These residences—a unique style designed by Haiti-born architects—are a  symbol of Haiti, which became the first black republic in 1804, after a slave uprising against France. The wooden buildings are among the rare structures that survived the 2010 earthquake that resulted in 300,000 deaths. Follow me on @williamodaniels for more human stories around the world.
