Thursday October 19th: Rebuilding Syria’s Cities for All
A Conversation with Marwa al-Sabouni and Molly Crabapple

Festival of the Future City, Arnolfini Center for Contemporary Art 6pm – 7pm
Marwa al-Sabouni runs a private architectural studio in Homs, Syria. She advocates that architecture played a crucial role in the slow unravelling of Syrian cities’ social fabric, preparing the way for once-friendly groups to become enemies instead of neighbours. This conversation will explore the role architecture and the built environment play in whether a community crumbles or comes together, and offers insights on how Syria should be rebuilt.
