“Bayti”, Elise Lécuyer’s end of studies project

Bayti offers a solution for transitional housing for migrants. It promotes the rebuilding of personal identity using a flexible and adaptable system which lets each person appropriate the space according to their culture. The tool for dialog between refugees and NGOs also makes it possible to collect data in order to have a better understanding of ethnic groups and offers a learning method to transform or develop the habitat. The migrants feel more valued and their resilience process is encouraged.
