  • The ROLE of WOMEN in spatial planning!

    The ROLE of WOMEN in spatial planning!

    Architecture, urban planning, interior design, … everything that has something to do with spaces. In the last few year, since I’m really focusing on democratic, social, cultural and sensitive issues in architecture, I have to say, mostly only women appear as active participants! It is amazing and crazy! Thanks ladies!!! Check this article to read […]

  • PERFECT WEATHER for doing research and writing an article about “Identity & Space”! = Family time!

    PERFECT WEATHER for doing research and writing an article about “Identity & Space”! = Family time!

    I love my life & work balance! 😀 “We are not missionaries but when something here works, such as, for example, the integration of refugees, disabled or elderly persons then this could surely be adopted as an example of how it could function at a larger scale. We present our experience in the form of […]

  • Always be positive!

    Always be positive!

    NOTHING – there is no such a thing like nothing, or maybe there is. Even nothing has two sides. You know what I mean? On one side, there are people who believe that there is such thing like nothing and on the other side, there are people who believe that there is no such a […]

    This post could be endless, so I start with the most important and then backwards in time… The Architecture for Refugees (I’m one of the co-founders there) started a collaboration with the Emergency Architecture & Human Rights organisation based in Copenhagen to build 99 more classrooms and football fields for refugees and local communities in the […]

  • From the culture of waiting to the culture of care!

    From the culture of waiting to the culture of care!

    “From the culture of waiting to the culture of care” is called our MANIFESTO we have developed in 2016 with the students of the Tirana Architecture Week! Thanks to the Future Architecture Platform, the Architecture for Refugees was invited to organise a workshop in Tirana. This manifesto was one of the results. The other one […]

  • Do you know what is the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”?!

    Do you know what is the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”?!

    I have just checked it! I’m working a lot with refugee housing projects around the world and in Switzerland and this question came to my mind? I’m wondering if it is legal to host an asylum seeker in a “housing settlement” with periods when they can enter or not?! This is the case in many […]
