How Syria’s Architecture Laid the Foundation for Brutal War

This is a REALLY interesting Ted talk by a Syrian architect who remained in the city of Homs during the last six years of war.

“Even simple things like shaded places or fruit plants or drinking water inside the city can make a difference in how people feel towards the place, and whether they consider it a generous place that gives, a place that’s worth keeping, contributing to, or whether they see it as an alienating place, full of seeds of anger. In order for a place to give, its architecture should be giving, too.”   -Marwa Al-Sabouni

Listen to the Ted Talk and let us know what you think!
