Strategies to rebuild Aleppo
Since the Syrian war began in 2011, Aleppo’s human and cultural heritage has
been in great danger. In order to adress this, the Association of the Friends
of the Old City of Aleppo, Mamoun Fansa, Carola Simon and Lena Wimmer
founded the working group “Rebuilding ALEPPO*” to develop new strategies
to rebuild the city. Because the city archive was destroyed during the war, the
association’s digital archive is of increasing value. The main goals of this working
group are to develop the reconstruction of the Old City of Aleppo in dialogue
with the new city, and to promote awareness regarding cultural heritage and
identity to support the emergence of a new city, a city that unifies new and old:
the future Aleppo. Today, we witness a collective opportunity to develop solutions
for a city older than 5000 years. It is our responsibility to develop solutions
that will penetrate the facade and last longer than a mere generation.
