This co-edited volume builds upon the workshop “Inside Out–Outside In: Shifting Architectures of Refugee Inhabitation,”held in January 2019 at the Max Planck In-stitute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity in Göttingen, Germany.1 The workshop brought together a group of scholars, architects, urbanists, planners, de-signers, and sociologists, from both academia and practice, working at the intersec-tion of architectural spatial research and migration/refugee studies. This workshop focused on the reciprocal relationship between design, displacement, and practices of inhabitation, seen through the lens of the shifting and changing architectures of shelter(ing). Contrary to the architectural disciplinary orthodoxies of permanence and durability, these architectures are in a constant state of flux, ephemeral, and blatantly showcasing the impermanences and fragilities of our contemporary conditions. Fur-thermore, the workshop aimed at challenging the humanitarian, interventionist, and technocratic understandings of architectural spatial production and its subsequent dualisms between the figure of the “architect” and that of the “refugee”–putting one at the giving end and the other at the receiving end of technical expertise and, by ex-tension, knowledge (Chitchian, Momic, and Seethaler-Wari 2020). This volume builds upon these ideas and expands them further
