We are currently participating in the What Design Can Do ‘Refugee Challenge,’ sponsored by the IKEA Foundation and the UN Refugee Agency, to find innovative solutions that help cities and refugees adapt to the many migration crises around the world. Our idea is to ‘hack’ Better Shelter, one of the leading emergency shelter solutions already deployed throughout the region. By modifying the Better Shelter system to provide a range of different shelter types, we can provide safe and attractive places to help integrate refugee communities as they wait for asylum.
