The Project Spaces presents Grainne Hassett’s The Calais Maps, a document of the informal refugee camp which grew outside Calais town between 2015 and 2016.

The Calais Maps are a series of architectural, urban and landscape drawings generated by Grainne Hassett as political documents using architectural methodology. At Calais Hassett organised/built community infrastructure to include a women’s and children’s centre, a therapy and community space, a vaccination unit and a youth centre, amongst other projects.

Whilst working in camp Hassett noted social and physical processes in the developing structures around her. Following the brutal demolition of the south camp Hassett commenced the task of mapping Calais to document a town disappeared.

Highlighting the importance of architectural research through practice, Hassett’s drawings speak about her work as a witness to address pertinent topics regarding the political, social and environmental issues which arose at Calais.
