Displacement and reconstruction in Iraq
Structures of Displacement documents a joint project of the [applied] Foreign Affairs lab of the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). The project involved the conception and design of an agricultural training center at Harsham Camp, a refugee camp in Erbil in the Kurdistan region of Iraq (2016–2019).
This book presents [a]FA’s mapping of the Harsham Camp to identify and describe its economic networks and habitats, and provides insights into the individual biographies of the camp’s residents.
The project was conducted as part of the UN mandate to stabilize Iraq and support economic recovery and reconstruction for displaced persons and returnees.
