• Designing for the Refugee Crisis

Harriss, Harriet, 2016, Conference or Workshop, Designing for the Refugee Crisis at Designing for the Refugee Crisis, London, UK, 9 May 2016.

Abstract or Description:

A presentation of the Refugee Wearable Shelter project's practical and pedagogic efficacy and limitations, followed by a panel debate. Over the past year the refugee situation across Europe has escalated into a full-blown crisis. Very recently local authorities in Calais began destroying sections of the “Jungle” – the sprawling refugee and migrant camp that has become a symbol of Europe's immigration crisis. Architects are equipped with the knowledge that can provide a solution to one of the most basic human rights refugees need: shelter. The question is not should the architectural community respond, but how? This panel discussion in partnership with Museum of Architecture will shed light on some of the work architects and designers are doing in response to the crisis.
