These Buildings Will Accommodate All Religions in Refugee Camps

Yale architecture students Lucas Boyd and Chad Greenlee decided to use their skills to accommodate all religions in refugee camps and introduced three design proposals for pop-up religious buildings.

While most would create a universally accepted space in which people of all faiths could practice their religion, the students wanted to ensure that their designs were modeled after their aspirations of religious plurality. As a result they designed three different pop-up religious buildings that accommodate people of Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths. While the concept of creating pop-up buildings for faiths did risk caricaturing the history and design of religious architecture -- they managed to design minimal spaces that take into account yet still simplify large-scale architecture of its kind. The religious buildings also aim to accommodate various sects within the religions themselves.

Accommodating religious plurality in refugee camps sends a message that these groups of people are united in their willingness to build communities and relationships together.
