This thesis, Oasis of Resilience, presents the challenges Syrian refugee children faced during the years of war in Syria and continue to face in Za'atari refugee camp in Jordan. Recasting the physical environment as an opportunity for health improvement in the harsh temporality of refugee camp. The hope is that an increased understanding of child development psychology and the Pedagogy science within the design process of physical setting will create an environment that would support children to withstand or overcome their traumas and to be prepared to enter the education realm in the future.This design thesis illustrates some relationship between children's health and design, identifies needed facilitator parties in creating children places in refugee camp, create a toolkit for designers to better understand the health implications of their design action, and develop a design prototype as an illustration of my finding.
