Refugee Camps for Syrians are a Do-It-Yourself Cities

Refugee Camps for Syrians are a Do-It-Yourself Cities | Costruzioni | Scoop.it

... is becoming an informal city: a sudden, do-it-yourself metropolis ... with the emergence of neighborhoods, gentrification, a growing economy and, under the circumstances, something approaching normalcy, though every refugee longs to return home. There is even a travel agency that will provide a pickup service at the airport, and pizza delivery, with an address system for the refugees that camp officials are scrambling to copy.

The change, accelerated by regional chaos and enterprising Syrians, illustrates a basic civilizing push toward urbanization that clearly happens even in desperate places — people leaving their stamp wherever they live, making spaces they occupy their own.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, July 7, 2014 12:03 PM

This is an intriguing article that explores the difficulties of forced migrations that arise from civil war, but it also looks at city planning as refugee camps are established to make homes for the displaced.  These camps have become into de-facto cities. The maps, videos and photographs embedded in the article show the rapid development of these insta-cities which organically have evolved to fit the needs of incoming refugees.  Size not investing in permanent infrastructure has some serious social, sanitation and financial cost, there are some efforts to add structure to the chaos, to formalize the informal.  Truly this is a fascinating case study of in urban geography as we are increasingly living on what Mike Davis refers to as a "Planet of Slums."

How Architecture Is BORN: 7 Dynamic Diagrams by MVRDV and the Buildings They Inspired

How Architecture Is BORN: 7 Dynamic Diagrams by MVRDV and the Buildings They Inspired | Costruzioni | Scoop.it
From free-flowing sketches to photorealistic renderings, architects have a plethora of mediums with which to communicate their design ideas to clients and the wider world. However, one particular type of graphic representation has seen a remarkable rise in popularity in recent years: the diagram. This form of drawing has long been popular with heavyweights of the profession, such as OMA, and has since been prolifically utilized by Rem Koolhaas’ alumni — including dynamic Dutch studio MVRDV.
MVRDV’s diagrams are fueled by a desire to distill ideas down to a crystallized sequence that clearly conveys the origins of an architectural concept. These drawings tell the story behind the studio’s process, helping to illustrate the firm’s logical journey toward a design solution informed by programmatic and contextual drivers. Here, we sample seven of MVRDV’s colorful diagrams and the buildings — either complete or in development — that they helped to shape
