Traditional Residential Architecture is a widely underrepresented Cultural Heritage under immense threat due to deterioration caused by individual neglection, natural disasters, and armed conflicts. The speakers will reflect in this evening event on the past and future of this valuable architectural heritage: the varied types of Levantine residential architecture and its changes in shape and use during the past centuries, its historic construction techniques and crafts involved, and present condition, with a focus on Aleppo.
