Camps are the concrete form of the state of exception, the state of suspension of the legal rights.

As heterotopias, twenty camps are scattered throughout Palestine hosting thousands of refugees since the beginning of the fifties. The Palestinian refugee camp, conceived as a temporary solution - to the needs of a huge flow of immigrants in poor conditions, has solidified over time but it is still perceived as a short term arrangement.

Refugee camps in Palestine do not belong to the
hosting country; they cannot be considered urban nor as villages - in the countryside. Formally they are under the tutelage of UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) but due to historical evolution and actual living conditions, nowadays camps suffer of structural weaknesses: extremely high density, widespread risk of building collapse, poor water and energy supply and inefficient sewage system.

The project presented in this book aims to consider camps a “independent machines” scattered throughout the territory and its ultimate objective is to develop a viable self-sufficiency strategy for camps using tools of a very lightweight design, the exploitation of natural resources and community activities.
