Eye-catching Ingenious, Functional Woven Homes For Refugees
Abeer Seikaly, is an architect, artist, designer, and cultural producer based in Amman, Jordan. She recently launched a project called “Weaving Home”, in which she designed temporary but comfortable shelters with basic amenities.
The domes are made of fabric and are weather proof, collapsible, portable, and lightweight. They are well ventilated, with windows that can be closed during winter and rainy days. Through a process called a thermo siphoning system, the structure can collect water from an outer source and allow people to use the water for quick showers. The exterior part of the tent converts solar radiation into usable electricity, while the inner part serves as a pocket for storage.
