Germany has experienced tremendous growth in the number of refugees seeking asylum in the country over the past year. This has led to an acute shortage of accommodations. When it opened as a temporary reception center for first-time asylum applicants in 2010, Munich's Bayernkaserne, a former military barracks, was home to 400 people. As of the end of June of this year, some 2,000 refugees called it home.
