IMCL Honor Award, Proposed Project - Refugee Village Masterplan

Jury’s comment:

This is a truly outstanding masterplan for refugees in the Middle East – visionary, ethical, sustainable, and practical. Instead of insecure and degrading tents or shacks, this plan proposes adobe brick structures built by immigrants working together. The plan prioritizes community building by locating a market place at the center, and emphasizing civic structures, a school, a church and a mosque. Immigrants’ houses are designed to accommodate small shops or businesses, as families get settled, thus facilitating a normal urban lifestyle.
