Maidan Tent

Maidan Tent has been designed to help refugees living in makeshift camps to socialise and complete activities in an indoor public space.

The structure is a covered welcoming square, designed to host a variety of different activities. The center of the tent is used as an open meeting space, enclosed by a ring of semi-private spaces where people can gather to freely pursue their activities.

The tent is four-meters high and can accommodate more than 200 people. The aluminum structure is covered with a water and wind-resistant, fireproof textile.

The word "maidan" means "square" in Arabic.


This project has been longlisted in the small building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
