A Discussion Into Forced Human Migration and How Design Can Impact Itpresented by Studio Completiva
According to the UN, there are currently 80 million people, 1% of the world population, uprooted from their homes after fleeing wars or persecution. This number has doubled in the past 10 years. As we look to the future, we will encounter rapid urbanization driven by slums, more and larger refugee camps and unsanctioned, unplanned tent cities cropping up in public and open, natural spaces as people resort to migration to find a better quality of life. Featuring a range of migrant housing, settlements, and camps, speakers will highlight past successes and failures and identify elements of planning, program, and design which have been taken into consideration for each.
