From refugee camps to sustainable cities:

Rethinking displaced person settlements

A radical architectural proposal to tackle the vital issue of providing a future for Syrian refugees is poised for world recognition later this year.

Shelter on the Edge, by Design & More International, calls for the re-imagining of temporary settlements overflowing with people fleeing the ancient city of Aleppo, but stranded on the Turkish border.

This is a figure currently estimated at around 100,000, with approximately 40,000 having made it across the frontier.

The plan is to transform the camps from a mixture of safe haven and prison, offering security but little hope, to sustainable communities aimed at rebuilding lives, offering homes, jobs, social interaction and education.
