Project Summary

Pavilion Re-claimed in Lebanon

Adaptive reuse for refugee education

Located in an informal settlement for Syrian refugees, the project creates a dignified school environment from the leftover materials of a temporary pavilion in a collaborative and smart reassembly of its components.

By reusing a temporary structure for a humanitarian purpose, the project contributes to sustainability through re-appropriation and calls attention to the opportunity for architectural structures to be re-used beyond their originally intended purpose.
