New Perspectives on Calais - changing the landscape of migration

01

Joelle's portfolio won Best Student Portfolio at the Landscape Institute Awards 2017. 



The Calais Jungle was the largest irregular refugee camp in Europe until its closure in October 2016.


Migration is a phenomena that will be a constant for the foreseeable future; landscape architects have a positive role in proposing solutions to temporary settlements & their environmental impact; food & water security, social integration & mental & physical well-being.


The project proposes a new typology of landscape-led temporary settlement for refugees which treats both people & the environment with care & humanity.


It also aims to record this major event in European history by creating a series of connected landscapes that remember this time & make a positive effort to heal divisions between Calais and the refugee.
