Remnants of a Separation
It is post-war Aleppo. Syrians are starting to return to their homes. They remember a city vibrant with heritage and culture but have arrived to see a city that suffered greatly from corruption, bombing, and communal chaos during the conflict. It is a broken place that needs reconstruction to bring the region together.
The challenge is to create memory infused architecture to be served for and by the citizens of Aleppo.
The solution is a Caravanserai to help Syrians transition to a permanent home, incorporating traditional markets (Souq) and leisure activities (shopping, storytelling, and debates) to kick start the building of communities.
