Kalobeiyei, 18 July 2017 – Renowned Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, has signed an agreement with UN-Habitat to design as many as 12,000 new homes in the Kalobeiyei refugee settlement site in Northern Kenya.
Signing the agreement on site in Northern Kenya, Ban explained that the most important thing was to ensure that the design was sustainable.
Nairobi, 10 July 2017 – Renowned architect, Shigeru Ban, will visit the Kalobeiyei refugee settlement site in Northern Kenya this week as part of a newly-established partnership with UN-Habitat.
Under a partnership with VAN, the Voluntary Architects Network, Mr Ban will develop potential shelter designs for residents of the camp based on socio-economic needs and available data from UN-Habitat. The two organizations will also conduct participatory design workshops with the community, and develop 20 shelter design models.
The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.
