By using practice as research and by crossing several disciplines, the experimental, embassy pavilions explore a range of interpretations of what sanctuary and refuge can mean.’ – Natasha Reid, designer of the ’embassy for refugees’

This cross-disciplinary venture engages architecture, design, art through participation, engineering and human rights advocacy. As part of ‘refuge week,’ a UK wide venture, Natasha Reid proposed a structure that examines the meanings of sanctuary, refugee and escape. The UN refugee agency used the pavilions to launch a report on the subject. the project is also an ongoing collaboration and part of the traveling artwork ‘transient sanctuary’, the unexpected spaces will emerge across a variety of different sites in the UK.

The structure takes its inspiration from caves and tree canopies and explores ideas of transparency, exposure, protection and permanence.
