Abstract

The purpose of this study is to propose a planning method for forming a temporary residential complex, including temporary residences, administration and management, in order to evaluate the planning methods of temporary residential spaces for refugees. The study results are as follows: Even though a temporary residence is not a permanent structure, it must satisfy minimal housing standards. The characteristics of the temporary residential complex and residences are influenced by the temporary nature of the setting. Therefore, complex location, arrangement planning, public and infrastructure facilities, which are the constituent elements of a temporary residential complex, must coincide with an appropriate residential location in Korea, including access to fresh water. And, the selection of an adequate housing area and the separation of each room according to residential function are needed for temporary residences. In addition, a prompt management system for a set time period, and a recycling plan must be developed for the managers and administrators.
