The Jarahieh School Project // Catalytic Action
In 2016, I joined Catalytic Action again for yet another incredible project which they designed and implemented in the Beqaa valley, Lebanon. This time they were constructing a school for Syrian refugee children in the Jarahieh informal tented settlement. An opportunity appeared when Save the Children Italy constructed a pavilion for the 2015 Expo in Milan, designed by the architecture studio: Argot au La Maison Mobile, but wanted the structure to be reused for a charitable purpose. The materials were consequently donated and shipped to Lebanon to be used for the new school. My contribution included on-site design and problem solving, construction, mural painting and documenting through photography. More information on the project here.
