Out NOW!

New IoA Publication STRUCTURES OF DISPLACEMENT by Baerbel Mueller and Frida Robles, published by Birkhauser, in Die Angewandte’s book series Edition Angewandte.

Structures of Displacement refers to the joint project between the [applied] Foreign Affairs lab of the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) for the conception and design of the Agricultural Training Center in Harsham Camp in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan (2016 -2019).

The project contributes to the overall UN brief of ”integrated stabilization, economic recovery and reconstruction support for displaced persons and returnees”. As part of the project, [a]FA mapped the camp to identify economic networks, habitats, and individual stories. In order to reflect on the project, Structures of Displacement was also organized as an exhibition and symposium that took place at the Institute of Architecture, University of Applied Arts Vienna in October 2019.
