As part of the What Design Can Do ‘Refugee Challenge,’ sponsored by the IKEA Foundation and the UN Refugee Agency, we have proposed a simple solution to aid the integration of cities and refugees. Our design is a series of ‘hacks’ that expand the application of Better Shelter, a leading emergency shelter system already deployed throughout crisis areas around the world. With a few creative modifications to Better Shelter, we can provide a range of different shelter types that offer safe and attractive spaces for refugee communities waiting for asylum.
