"We live in the age of the refugee, the age of exile." - Ariel Dorfman Innocent Syrian refugees have faced a lot of suffering and pain by being caught in the middle of a civil war. Their permanence in their own country became a life risk. New Zealand is one of the countries that are warmly receiving Syrian refugees. To make their transition to Wellington less estranged, I will propose a temporary settlement. This thesis looks into scales of interaction, such as urban connections within communities and mainly the interior of each prefabrictaed home. Elements of the design will be derived from both western and Islamic cultures.
