Abeer Seikaly saw a tent and, invoking nomadic lifestyles of the past, re-envisioned its structure as a self-sustaining shelter, not only achieving its primary function of housing refugees, but also providing the point from which their social interactions can be recreated in a new environment.The result is a collapsible, mobile solar-powered refugee tent.Seikaly submitted the project to the design contest because its theme of "motion" resonated with her. She has been experimenting with the relationship between structure and fabric for years, while also exploring abstract concepts like motion, time, self-sufficiency and nature in her work.The experience of the "object" in Seikaly's design work is also related to movement.Seikaly's design concept is deeply rooted in nature, and her work employs principles that she perceives as existing already in the environment.Seikaly also invoked the past in her research for the project.
