Abstract [en]

This project investigates how architecture can influence society’s perception of refugees. The site in Fagersjö was suggested for refugee housing by the city. This raised questions and even resentment by the local population. My project proposes to incorporate a concept that makes temporary housing an asset to the community and raises acceptance. With temporary housing aesthetic, economic and especially social issues arise. The design aims to resolve these, creating a place that allows living with dignity and that links locals and refugees. Ultimately the system proposed in the project is to be applicable for different sites changing the additional program to fit the community’s needs to integrate it better in the context. The timber housing is sheltered by a glazed roof that covers the site creating a variety of private, shared and public spaces that can be used for an extended period because of the climatic conditions the roof provides.
