new life in old walls

CATEGORY: ⚐ EN + architecture + eu:abierto

This post is by you.

I am an architecture student from Germany and would like to share my last semester\’s urban design project with you. It was a group work focusing on the revitalization of a city quarter in the UNESCO-listed Old Town of Damascus, Syria. We proposed up-to-date housing in the traditional courtyard houses and a new cultural center on what has been urban wasteland for centuries.

| check out the project here (urban) and here (housing). |

How do you feel about it? Is a new construction for culture and leisure in this context full of religious history thinkable? How about multi-family housing around a common courtyard in an islamic country?

After all, what is the most sustainable solution for this decaying but beautiful quarter – in all aspects of sustainability? What would have been your approach?
