More than Shelters
HOW TO DESIGN AN ARRIVAL CITY
Ideas from design studio "more than shelters"
- Establishing "Civic Hubs" in refugee camps and poor urban areas. These are innovation incubators led by refugees which have the required resources for impact (from a physical space to tools and network infrastructure).
- Relabelling camps as arrival cities and helping local governments redesign existing facilities for better conditions (consulting)
- Product design specific to the refugee crisis. Eg: dignifying shelters and decontamination units.
