"Migration in Venezuela has become an issue of concern in a global scale. Research has shown that people are leaving Venezuela for several reasons; mostly because of the level of violence and lack of basic human needs. The political conditions since 2000 this issue affected most of the population, causing Venezuelans to leave the country. This thesis aims to show how Architecture can raise awareness about the situation that migrants live in, how to provide a easier transition from their temporary nomad condition to start laying roots in a new country and reconnect with their sense of community integrating them into Ecuadorian society, and at the same time enrich the community that the migrants inhabit in the city of Quito, Ecuador."
