Refugees Welcome

Two semesters ago I had the opportunity to be one of the first architecture students, at least in Germany, who was asked to work on proper, dignified accomodations for refugees.
Even though it was only a 'mental exercise' the seminar had a big influence on the following debates concerning solutions on how to accomodate thousands of refugees not only seeking shelter in Germany but all over Europe.

Prof. Jörg Friedrich, Dean of the Department of Architecture and Landscape, and his staff took the results of that seminar and published a book called `REFUGEES WELCOME'. Now he is giving speeches like this one at the Leibniz University Hanover.
