rebuilding post and (through) war torn city

Project "Al Raqqa -Civic generator" is a tale about a neighborhood in the city of Raqqa, a once lively town at by the river Euphrates in Syria, reduced now to rubble by the raging war in Syria and prior to it by harsh political conditions and environmental changes.
This story is an exploration of a scenario where elements from the city's past, both materialistic and cultural, are weaved and reused to rebuild its future. it’s also the story of the people of the Raqqa, their struggle and fight to rebuild their beloved home, and reconnect the shattered fragments of their society, it’s about an architecture in time of emergency, that looks beyond the questions of form and program, to face the more pressing challenging of resources, needs, and identity
