The relationship between Maggie Program, Maggie Shelter and DMOA?
Maggie Program vzw is the non-profit department of DMOA architects. It aims to roll out small-scale construction projects with innovative solutions in hard-to-reach or conflict areas for refugees and disadvantaged populations. It originated as a result of the Maggie shelter innovation.
The first proof of concept was in Steenokkerzeel for uncombined minors refugees -as a result of innovative process in DMOA and supported by Vlaio. Maggie is a building that looks like a tent by filling the double-walled structure with local materials such as sand and even plastic waste.
