dc.description.abstractRESEARCH QUESTION: How can architectural intervention support the repatriation of refugees and enable them to create a self-reliant village? PROJECT OUTLINE: The site of the project is on the east of Thanlwin River in Myanmar, 20km away from the existing Karenni Refugee Camp. It involves the design of a rural, self-reliant village using local building materials with the integration of modern technology. A variety of shelters and communal buildings have been designed, such as housing clusters, classrooms, a vocational centre and a community hall. The medical centre and more housing clusters are to be added as the community grows, and the village is to be built in stages. The design will integrate permaculture principles through farming and architectural design.en_NZ
