T-Shelter : exploded axon Azraq Refugee Camp, Jordan T-Serai pavillion Alternative T-Serai structures for the different social needs A SOCIALLY INCLUSIVE MODULAR SYSTEM From a distance, the refugee camp appears as an endless grid of white containers. The T-shelter is a representative prefabricated architecture for displacement. Connective threads is a response to the dehumanizing impacts of the one-size-fits-all solution for refugee camps predominantly masked with the guise of efficiency. To that we respond with a modular efficient system that is not a product of standardization, but rather of innovative design practices that defy the lack of agency connected to statelessness and conditions of encampment. Connective threads offers a framework for localized distributed production and a culturally relevant humanitarian architecture. The flexible textile architecture of the T-serai adapts to shifting social settings and needs.
