The port city of Calais has become home to a number of refugee camps that have become known as “the Jungle.” In attempt to help the children who live in “the Jungle,” a group of architecture students, known as Tak Tak Tak, launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the Calais Kids Space, a safe and comfortable flat-pack structure for children.
