Flüchtiges Zuhause

Temporary rooms

How does temporary architecture differ from permanent architecture? What connects it with mobility and flexibility? How do we want, should and must we organise ourselves spatially to integrate people in need of space in Europe, Switzerland and the Basel region? Are there alternatives to temporary forms of construction?

The world and the people living in it are in great movement. According to UNHCR are the first time since the Second World War more than 50 million people fleeing abroad or living as displaced persons in their own country. Asylum and job seekers, hungry and displaced people to leave their homes and are forced to temporarily set up in shelters. We have not only a humanitarian refugee problem but also an acute housing problem, which is now increasingly entering the public debate.

Temporary types we already know for a long time, for example, as everyday dwellings of nomadic peoples, as expedition accommodation, as an emergency shelter following natural disasters, as a room extension when space is limited or as temporary locations for special religious events (eg. Kumbh Mela, India). The temporary architecture has established itself as a building type, but also the permanent architecture is volatile. Mobile, flexible and temporary structures proliferate in the urban fabric or in nature.

How temporary architecture differs from the permanent architecture? What unites them with mobility and flexibility? How want to and we must organize spatially to space needy people in Europe, Switzerland and the Basel region to integrate with us? Are there alternatives to the temporary designs?
