In refugee camps the uncertainty and seriality of a row without end of tents and containers, along with the lack common areas, can generate alienation and disorientation compared to the protection offered by one's home and to the proximity of one's community. In these conditions, there is no space for comparison. We believe interaction helps to ease sense of loss, but a place where people can meet is needed. Where can this be done, if within refugee camps often indoor facilities are used for family life and lack of space? Maiden tent, a possible solution. A public, organised common area, in which you can read, learn, play and interact.
