Through architecture a society is imparting its values. Even though Germany got known for its „welcome-culture“ consciously and unconsciously we create material and immaterial borders that make it more difficult for the refugees to settle.
My photographic work is a study of the architectural infrastructure for the accommodation of refugees in Germany provided by the state. It explores which social structures are visualizing through the architecture of refugee accommodations and what impact architecture and urban planning in this field have on refugees and locals. Through this I am engaging with the question, to what extend is architecture impairing integration in Germany?
