Description/Abstract

What is the role of architecture in a conflict situation? Architecture can act after or during a conflict by providing emergency aid, for example, refugee camps. This kind of emergency remedy measure brings a large amount of displaced people to other countries that may address the issue of displacement and interment of refugees in countries all over the world. Refugees may be discriminated and be treated as second class citizens in those countries. They are restricted in a small area like prisoners rather than legal citizens. In order to call attention to this problem and affect the countries which are refusing to participate in making life easier for refugees. I propose to build a hyper-real, cynical project in the form of underground "Disneyland" instead of a common refugee camps. I presume that people are going to stay and imprisoned underground of their country instead of imprisoned in the refugee camps away from their homeland.
