Perhaps you two (if you're not one in the same) should apply to FEMA in the hopes of putting your expertise into practice.

Fact is that many of the displaced were housed in gov't provided trailers for more than a year. And some of the displaced are still today living in the trailers FEMA provided. All in all 45,000 plus trailers were provided to Katrina victims........ And so you don't start chanting "Trailers Not Motels"... trailers for semi-permanent housing on an island prone to hurricanes is not a safe option.
Hmmm... making dwellings out of old shipping containers might be a viable option for PR. And they stack well. People in First World countries are re-purposing shipping containers into residential housing AND growing crops in them.
