Safe Space: for People Seeking Refuge (Dec 17)

Welcome to an event for the benefit of people seeking refuge. How can we as architects and fellow human beings act to relieve the ongoing humanitarian crisis?

It is organised by initiative from ArkitektStudenterna KTH (the student body of the Swedish Association of Architects), in collaboration with Arkitekturbaren and the KTH School of Architecture.
