The issues which refugees face are universal to the sense of home, cultural identity, and belonging. What is the feeling of being home? It can be related to the ownership and stewardship a person feels over their inhabited space. What architectural qualities are apparent in creating these notions?

The ethnically diverse community on the selected site has already played an active role in negotiating the use of outdoor space on the site. To allow the community to continue the process of place-making, we look to create open ended opportunities for the use of communal spaces.

Our strategy was to contrast the absolute concrete towers with layers of subtlety creating a diffused series of spaces and through a strategic programming proposal “bring the city to the site”. Layers of abstract to overt geometries of a traditional Islamic pattern, which symbolizes unity, are used for the landscape and housing proposal.
