What: Displacements_People: Designing for the Global Refugee Crisis
This current moment of unprecedented migration--the flows of people displaced by conflict, economic need, and environmental degradation--urgently demands a response from architects, planners, artists, and policy makers. At a time when many institutions are confronting how to, or sadly, whether to confront the issues of global population displacement, the design community continues to engage with this issue through analysis, advocacy, documentation and design.
