В конкурс могут быть поданы идеи по строительству жилья для сирийских беженцев, чтобы те могли вернуться в страну, как только гражданская война закончится. Многие города Сирии сегодня разрушены и не смогут принять своих бывших жителей. Новое жилье должно стать стимулом для возвращения сирийцев на родину, послужить толчком для того, чтобы они начали жизнь с чистого листа.
An international open ideas competition for architecture students and young architects is initiated to research the new housing concepts for the future of the post-war Syria. The civil war in Syrian Arab Republic, which has started in 2011, created the biggest refugee crisis after the World War II. According to UNHCR, over 4 300 000 people has left the country and fled to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and now Europe. While world leaders are looking for the international solution of the Syrian civil war and refugee crisis, many Syrians are looking forward for the opportunity to come back home as soon as the war is over.
Competition participants are asked to propose a solution for housing scarcity crisis, which will affect the country as more and more cities of the war-torn country will be freed and refugees will start to come back. Living conditions in the current refugee camps and temporary buildings across Europe and other countries are mostly inhuman, making refugees feel desperate, since there’s also nowhere to come back as the Syrian towns are in ruins, offering nothing to people who once lived there.
The vital part of the new housing concept should become a creation of such living conditions which will be attractive for once displaced Syrians to return. People, who spent years in temporary shelters and adapted buildings, will look for “solid ground” to begin a new life. New housing concept should be able to permanently accommodate people in need of a new home and become a new page in the history of Syria.
