Design and architecture to confront the refugee crisis
The Maidan Tent can accommodate up to 100 people and be divided into private spaces
“The Book of Homelessness”, the first graphic novel created by homeless people
The Italian architect Bonaventura Visconti di Modrone has searched for a new way to confront the refugee emergency from the point of view of architecture and design.
This is the origin of Maidan Tent, a tent conceived to accommodate up to 100 refugees, ensuring their independence and privacy by allowing its division into smaller spaces.
As it is a facility for emergency situations, the tent is designed to comply with the requirements of easy transport, quick and easy installation and adaptation to different natural environments. Thanks to a fan that continuously provides air, the interior is better insulated than with the traditional PVC coverings and the use of a highly resistant polyethylene and polyester textile cover favors the cleaning and disinfection of the tent.Maidan Tent
