Good architects have always designed with tactile sensations in mind, from the rich wood grain on a bannister, to the thick, shaggy carpet at a daycare center.
It’s an effective way to engage all the senses, connecting the eye, hand, and mind in ways that create richer environments. But one architecture professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is working on a tactile architecture-for-autism environment that does much more than offer visitors a pleasing and diverse haptic experience: It’s a form of therapy for kids like 7-year-old daughter Ara, who has autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Designmatters. For the first four weeks of the studio, students were introduced to the painstakingly detailed process of setting type and hand printing on the center’s vintage presses.
For students familiar only with the ease of digital composition – where changes can be made with a single mouse click – the letter-by-letter placement challenged them with patience, persistence and a steady hand. Many students observed that the intensely slow practice became meditative in nature, allowing them to reflect deeper and more intimately on their subjects. UNHCR - Vienna fair rewards best ideas for integrating refugees. A fair in Vienna has sought to find the best ideas for integrating refugees into Austrian society. © UNHCR/Zsolt Balla VIENNA, Austria – Ali Asgar Tajik has been making clothes since he was 11, so it was no problem for him to make a sweat jacket in a trendy retro fabric for his Austrian colleague, Jimmy Nagy.
Ali has made something more sophisticated for his fiancée, Zara Tadjek – a black pleated pinafore dress, with a black silk blouse underneath. Now they have cause to go out and celebrate because Kattunfabrik, the textile venture in which they are all involved, has won a prize at a fair in Vienna devoted to finding the best ideas for integrating refugees into Austrian society. Ideegration (ideas for integration), an initiative of global companies and organizations committed to social enterprise, looked at 104 projects before choosing 15 finalists for the fair, which was held in the former Ankerbrot bread factory on 10 November.

UNHCR - Syrian refugees transform crisis into a drama. Amid the familiar bustle of daily life in Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp, something out of the ordinary is taking place in a dusty yard outside one of the many thousands of shelters.
A dozen or so refugees are busy erecting sets, setting up lights and cameras, and donning makeup and costumes. Ahmed Hareb and his friends are about to start filming on their soap opera, entitled Ziko & Shreko. It offers a humourous take on serious issues affecting Syrian refugees, including child labour and early marriage. The big picture. Making Heimat. Germany, Arrival Country.

How music programs are helping young refugees adjust to life in Canada. By Amitha KalaichandranThe Canadian Press Thu., Oct. 27, 2016 MISSISSAUGA, ONT.
—At 11 years old, Majid has a voice that more than does justice to her slight 4-foot frame. Standing in the hallway of the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, Ont., Majid is practising one of several songs she has learned as a member of Nai Syrian Children’s Choir. This song is about peace, a new concept for the young choir members, all newly-arrived refugees from Syria.
“I like singing songs in English, Arabic, and … English again,” Majid says, her eyes sparkling, “and we sing at home too. Refugee Crisis: Be In Their Shoes. ONLY FOOTPRINTS, by Jeta B, Dec 2015, Grande-Synthe, France The International Organization for Migration estimates that more than 1 million migrants arrived across Europe in 2015. The continuing refugee crisis is being met with hostility instead of compassion. The footprint reminds us of the long and dangerous journeys they’ve undertaken in the hope of a new life. Painter Norman Lewis said, “The goal of the artist must be aesthetic development, and in a universal sense, to make in his own way some contribution to culture.” BAG2WORK backpacks are made from recycled boats and life vests. Two Dutch designers have worked with refugees to create a rucksack from discarded boats and life vests. Designed to offer the most possible space using the minimum amount of material, the 21-litre BAG2WORK bags are made from one square metre of boat rubber and four life-vest straps, which cross over the rucksack to hold it closed.
Designers Didi Aaslund and Floor Nagler – working under the name No Mad Makers – are currently crowdfunding the production of the bags through Kickstarter. Hyperledger's Brian Behlendorf explains how blockchain technology can help save refugees' lives — Quartz. A few years ago, Google conducted a massive internal study to understand how to build an effective team. Researchers concluded that the most important ingredient for good teamwork was psychological safety—in which members of a team feel comfortable expressing conflicting opinions and taking risks, knowing that their colleagues have their back. Management researchers and organizational psychologists largely agree that this dynamic is crucial to a company’s success. There’s just one problem: The very psychological safety that helps employees come up with their best, most creative work may also make tempt them to break bad.
This may come as a surprise, given that psychological safety would seem to be a boon for ethical behavior. Theoretically, employees who feel secure venturing outside their comfort zones should be in a better position to shoot down bad ideas, call out misbehavior, and blow the whistle if necessary—especially if they’re supported by strong leaders.

Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Manon van Hoeckel is crowdfunding her In Limbo Embassy – a travelling office that aims to facilitate open discussion around immigration in the Netherlands. Van Hoeckel's "embassy of the undocumented" – currently a simple wooden trailer that she purchased and rebuilt herself – is planned to travel across the country to provoke debate about migrants. "Too often direct contact between refugees and society is lacking," said the designer, who conceived the project during her studies. Pim van der Mijl designs "living room" for refugees and locals. Dutch Design Week 2015: Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Pim van der Mijl's De Voorkamer project proposes a communal meeting space to help break down barriers between refugees and local communities in Holland (+ slideshow).
De Voorkamer, meaning the living room, has been designed as a new domestic environment for asylum seekers and locals to socialise, with the aim of helping refugees integrate. Asylum seekers use their own skills and abilities to contribute self-made objects to the space, such as pieces of furniture or textiles, gradually turning it into something resembling a more welcoming living room. "I started by visiting refugee centres," van der Mijl told Dezeen. "I noticed there is this huge gap between the centre and the village around. It's very closed off. AHOMEAWAYFROMHOME.NL.
