Collage for Flowing Life’s Project. Honorable Mention in Mosul Postwar Camp Design Competition @architecture_competitions with Juanita Leal Ochoa.
Broken pieces of dramatic experiences, stop their lives from flowing. Running water as the most active landscape - transforming agent on the earth’s surface. Landscape, not as a empty canvas, but as a picture full of elements.
From the river flow, streams emerge and following topographic modifications, flood zones appear. Highlighting landscape values and the links between people.
Flowing lives camp’s principles are:
• Water for zoning
• Agricultural pattern for knitting
• Biodiversity to active cycles
• Topographical modifications to protect
• Flooding areas to clean
• Natural barriers to embrace
• Water, sun, wind and green, to take advantage of
• Agriculture, recycling and composting to close cycles
The process will flow. Urgent Humanitarian Aid Zone: Families will be recovered and placed in communities. Renewed citizens, will run streams with their territory flooding communal points with their background.
City Reintegration zone is an active territory, social and natural poténciala are flowing. Connecting also through the soil, agricultural activities are placed, as sharing spaces, as individual achievements.
The refugee camp has evolved into a dynamic coexisting territory. In the future will open itself progressively becoming part of a memorial park of hope, a natural mirror which reflects strength.
