Redefining “refugee” (in an autonomous Shatila)

The project proposes methods in which refugee camps can become self-sufficient entities with an unique identity by looking at and overwhelmingly crowded example-Shatila- a refugee camp that was meant to accommodate hundreds of Palestinian refugees within Beirut but later became permanent and over-populated with approximately 10.000-22.000 new residents. With the ongoing pandemic in mind, one wonders how those in such conditions would live through an unanticipated lockdown.

WALL-E Transforming waste into a floating city to restore the Sunken Kingdom of Binuangan

The Philippines ranks third in the world as the biggest ocean polluter of plastic. Wall-E’s main idea is to find life in the middle of a wasteland. It’s named after a series of walls that connect and provide foundation for the settlements in the area. These sunken fortifications now serve as the walkways to connect to the people to their homes. However, Binuangan village has to problems: their land is slowly sinking into the ocean and the lack of proper water treatment and solid waste management. Despite these alarming problems the locals refuse to leave their homes as fishing is their main source of livehood. To address these environmental issues Wall-E proposes amphibious pods made from recycled plastic waste. The future presents us an opportunity to transform our coastal habitats into resilient cost-effective and mass-produced alternatives which positively impact our environment.
