My degree project focuses on the relationship between design and rescue and tries to figure out how design can add to humanitarian aid and non-commercial environments.

In my project, I worked on a non-food item for a refugee camp where shelter, food and sanitary solutions are the key issues and need to be solved immediately after a humanitarian crisis. To make this possible, great logistical planning and equipment which reacts as flexibly as possible to a new situation is needed. To be accepted and therefore useful for the camp community, the technology needs to communicate in a clear way.

My degree project is a work about cultural differences, cooking and refugee camps.
