THE STORY:

Safe Spaces For Syrian Refugees.

Safety and Social Justice, Girls and Women

The figures are staggering. Every three seconds a new refugee from the Syrian conflict is created; Currently the 4th largest city in Jordan is a refugee camp – itself is now the 2nd largest camp in the world; Hundreds of thousands of refugees are being housed in camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan.  

The reality is that the average lifespan of a refugee camp is 9 years and due to the transient nature of these temporary cities most of the infrastructure is not built to last. Most options for longer term facilities are not human-centered solutions and are utilitarian at best. This creates a sterile and unwelcoming landscape, especially for many children who will grow up within the camp. Worse still, reports of gender violence increase the longer and larger the camp. In short, women do not have a safe space to gather.

We aim to create a series of welcoming, safe spaces that can act as nodal points within the camps. Allowing women to gather safely, children to have access to play and social entrepreneurs to create new initiatives within the camps.

Architecture for Humanity and its’ partners work in a three pronged approach; community-led development, materials and construction research and ideation from the international design and building industries.

Architecture for Humanity will commit a local architect to work on developing community-led building solutions for safe spaces within the camps. Concurrently it will launch an international design competition to garner the most innovative ideas to address the plight of refugees. The focus are Syrian refugees in Jordan but the problem is global and we will seek contextually relevant solutions to this problem.

Finally, if funding is secured we will develop and construct a working prototype that can be used in the current camps and eventually scaled beyond.
