New publication: Craftsmanship for Reconstruction: Artisans Shaping Syrian Cities  02-02-2020 00:00

This chapter from our lab is published in the book Urban Heritage Along the Silk Roads. It extracts the model of "the builder" in the late Ottoman rule in Syria and its transformation into today's building practices. It also extrapolates this model into a possible future role of everyday construction in shaping Damascus. The work was originally presented in Silk Cities in 2017.
