Saving Aleppo Cultural Heritage, Stories of Local Graduate Architects ‘Talks & Debates’

London Festival of Architecture in collaboration with Places of ARcture with the support of the British Council are inviting Local Graduate Architects who practice in Aleppo, Syria to host a talk & debate at the Victoria & Albert Museum discussing the importance of protecting cultural heritage in their home city of Aleppo, within their own practice.

In a country devastated by 11 years of conflict, this event will highlight some of the surviving architectural heritage in the ancient part of the Aleppo city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The discussions will explore the challenges of preserving and restoring a living heritage site, whilst respecting and incorporating the needs of the local people connected to the area.

Through a series of presentations, short film screenings and a Q&A, we will discover the different ways that these architects are positioning the identity of the city, its tangible and intangible heritage, as the cornerstones of its reconstruction.

Speakers:
Laura Searson, Cultural Heritage Preservation Lead, V&A (Host)
Muhammad Achour, Director and Founder of Places of ARcture
Dania Al-Alshlhawi
Mohamad Al-Assali
