Refugee Start-Up Kit / Emergency Living Module

Refugee Start-Up Kit
Refugee Start-Up Kit

Two types of modules have been designed in order to create a transient and flexible space for the facilitation of 80 refugee orphans from the Haiti earthquake, and 40 Syrian refugees adults in a local park setting. Due to the current refugee crisis, it is vital to conceptualise various solutions for the placement of refugees, which can be done through the design of small living modules. These modules are intended to be placed at a park location within a community in order to educate and help grow the lives of young children and adults affected by trauma. The first module is a living module, and the other a flexible and transformable module.
