As soon as the refugees found the mosque they were overwhelmed by the majestic forest of columns.  They started spreading out within this forest making humble ‘clearings’ for themselves. The maze like formation creates a world within a world, protected by the multiple layers of fabric. Any strangers would get lost amongst the columns and the illusive translucency created by the fabric. The plan is intrinsically the dance of a singular line around and amongst the columns where a bend defines a space and the negative of that bend defines a space for the adjacent unit. The cylinders enclose the user, hiding the columns from view creating a simpler, and more peaceful view, enclosing them in a safe cool cocoon.
