The Home not Shelter! Plug-in is a usage-neutral room module that
spatially expands the precarious living situation of refugees in
emergency shelters and makes offers that go beyond mere accommodation.
In the plug-in, refugees can get actively involved in a collaborative
process and with professional support. The pavilion is to be planned in
the immediate vicinity of existing refugee shelters and is adaptable in
size. If necessary, it can change its location and be relocated to other
workplaces. The “Home not Shelter! -Plug-in” can be an open space,
event space and meeting place where new and old neighbors meet, exchange
ideas and get to know each other. It can either be docked directly to
the accommodation or set up in its vicinity. The plug-in has the
potential to reproduce, expand, and multiply itself and to adapt to
various locations and uses. The high aesthetic and architectural quality
serves as a signal that ‘refugee architecture’ does not have to
correspond to the precarious living situation of those affected.
