The Threshold

About

A business incubator to empower refugees

Refugee camps are generally a have high population density of nearly 1.9 million refugees in Jordan, and more than 850 thousand in Syria and Lebanon, with cramped living conditions and inadequate infrastructures and low living standards.

The Threshold analyses Hitteen refugee camp to propose an Agritech-business Incubator and a Fabrication lab for youth, as a connection between the conventional teaching methods that Schneller school provides with the innovative and eager-to-change youth, to bridge the gap and move forward to a better decent life and change the community from a consumer to a producer.

    I graduated from the German Jordan University with a BSc. in architecture. I am an architect and an individual who is eager to make a change and have an impact, I believe that discovering opportunities in each challenge, determining solutions and ideas that seem impossible to be anticipated and realizing that the real change and impact stems from the core of society itself and not from the bizarre solutions presented that might work against the flow of culture or the environment, is something everyone should realize and work upon. My bachelor thesis focuses on enhancing and bringing opportunities to the underdeveloped refugees' camps. the aim is to restructure the community and transfer it from a consumer to producer through an agribusiness incubator and fabrication lab with the cooperation of Schneller school as a prototype to better urban integration and enhance refugees’ camps stereotype. I am very enthusiastic and passionate about humanitarian architecture and urban design and am hoping to improve Jordan's urban issues through sustainable design and relations.more
