Salem explains that, his 'research curiosity resides in how to engage local affected communities in the reconstruction process, and to empower them to build their own appropriate homes that respond to their socio-cultural practices while using efficient resources. This design project will develop several series of self-help housing prototypes that can meet the dire housing need in Gaza, making use of existing materials and developing earlier work but with more simple and deliverable schemes.'
