ASYLUM SEEKERS BUILD A HOUSE DURING HELSINKI DESIGN WEEK 2017

People’s Architecture – a transitional shelter – will be built by Iraqi asylum seekers, citizens and international students with the guidance of architects during Helsinki Design Week. 
Building of Right To Live House started in Kolmen Sepän Aukio, in heart of Helsinki, on Monday 4thof September at 9 AM and the house will be built every day 9AM – 5PM. At 6-8PM there will be happenings, discussions and exhibitions. Right To Live House will be ready on 14th and will taken down on 17th of September. 
Architectures and curator of People’s Architecture and the asylum seekers of Right To Live movement are available for press on Monday at 4PM on Kolmen Sepän Aukio.
People’s Architecture installation presents a transitional shelter designed by Taiwanese HSIEH Ying-Chun and CHIU Chen-Yu. The shelter and its building process represent the architects’ reflection on and solution for consumerism in today’s housing industry generally and European migrant crisis in particular.
HSIEH and his team have been working on numerous post-disaster reconstruction programs around the world to promote participatory, cooperative and sustainable building methods. They believe that everyone should be the “producers” of their own house, instead of “consumers”. Building a house by people can provide them a job and a place to live. The building process can help them to regain their socioeconomic status and reconstruct their community. To refugees, this can further nurture their ability and creativity for the future reconstruction work in their homeland.
