The project is a workshop for people with low incomes in Al-Wehdat camp that aims to promote, develop and educate those with low incomes economically and socially within
Al-Wehdat camp and teach them professions to open doors of livelihood for them, which makes them harm money and improve their lives.

The project was chosen because it deals with the issue of a society that is less interested in them and there are no real solutions to help this group of society and they are in real suffering.

The project is located in the Al-Wehdat camp, which is a Palestinian refugee camp. The camp was established in 1955 and since that date, until now the camp suffers from many problems, and there is in Al-Wehdat camp one of the largest popular markets in Jordan, is the lifeline of the camp.

After studying th needs and problems of the cam and the market, a focus was placed on some issues, including economic poblems, social problems, and local product problems, and from here th formation of this project began as an attempt to find real solutions to them.

The project consists of four main activities, which are theoretical education, practical
training, a production line, and the sale of goods, where the trainee learns theoretically and practically and produces products and sells these products by presenting these products to market visitors, and thus the training is complete as it ends with an amount of money to start his own project. Through these four activities, the main functions of the project were formed.

The project contains classes for theoretical teaching, workshops for professional training and production, and Shops for the sale of these products. From here, the jobs were distributed in proportion to the needs of the site and the context of the camp, and the main idea of the design was to make the project part of the market and that the jobs interact with the place and context and create a distinctive experience for the trainees and visitors through the open squares and their link to the jobs within the project and the site, and one of the most essential things It was taken into account during the design is how to use materials similar to the materials used inside the camp with finding unique solutions to reuse some of the new elements in the camp so that they can be used and here the project contains some solutions in ways of construction and methods of reusing materials and it is a model for reviving the camp.
