Memory - Regathering Syria

PREMISE

 

War is the most serious reason for causing the damage to both artificial and natural landscape. Syria, one of the oldest civilizations in the world is entering it’s another year of debilitating violence at a moment of geopolitical flux.

A huge deficit that is created in Syria, including corruption, bombing and communal chaos, the place has lost a lot more than what it had. With its 7th Year of catastrophe, damage assessment reports say the payback amount is over 4 times to Syria’s 2010 GDP. While the immeasurable loss to property, life, tourism and heritage is beyond valuation, the war eventually has plundered all the bustling public life.

 

 

 

PROBLEM

 

The only hope Syria now has that the reconstruction of this broken place might bring the region together. It will cost a lot which cannot/won’t come from any one side, and by the trends of today, no side will actually outright win the war in the longer run. To even fix the abject destruction of Syria will require a peace deal producing a level of economic cooperation between all sides, foreign, domestic and people on the ground. Without it, Syria will perish.

 

Challenge: The first step of this cooperation begins by A. Creating a memory infused architecture with a B. Function by the C. Citizens of the place in one of the damaged/destroyed yet D. Important site(s) of Syria.
