Architect Abeer Seikaly has come up with a brilliant solution to help save and transform the lives of millions of refugees around the world.
Her brilliant project “Weaving a Home” aims to weave the lives of refugees back together with the help of a one-of-a-kind collapsible tent.
Aside from providing shelter, the tent can collect rainwater, store solar energy and provide electricity, running water, as well as storage.
Rainwater collected from the top of the tent is filtered down the sides. Inhabitants can actually take shower using the collected water through a process called thermosiphoning, which actually draws the water back up.
Inhabitants can also take advantage of the stored solar energy since the energy transferred from the tent’s fabric to a battery.
Inspired by materials found in nature and traditional cultural activities such as weaving, the tent has a double layer surface that serves dual purpose. It allows cool air in during summer while it keeps out wet and cold weather.
“Weaving a home” reexamines the traditional architectural concept of tent shelters by creating a technical, structural fabric that expands to enclose and contracts for mobility while providing the comforts of contemporary life (heat, running water, electricity, storage, etc.),” Abeer Seikaly wrote on her website.
The tent can also convert solar energy into power and heat collected water for showering, thanks to its fabric with strong thermal properties.
The tent has its own water collection system which direct water to the storage point. The double-layer surface allows cool air inside the tent during summer and seal up tight in case of wet weather or cold conditions.
This awesome tent provides a means for refugees to settle in a new land.
This is why the tent is part of a project known as “Weaving a Home”.
The tents allow them to “weave their lives” back together, from shelter to a real home.
