Post-Conflict Documentation of a Historic Neighborhood
(Suwayqat Ali Area – Old City of Aleppo)
Dima Dayoub, Ruba Kasmo, Anne Mollenhauer (Eds.)
Aleppo is one of the oldest, constantly inhabited cities of the world. The old city still bears the remains of the Hellenistic street grid and historic monuments of various periods. The area of the study “Suwayqat Ali” is located to the north of the suq (market area). It is a mixed quarter that contains public and private buildings. The area was selected due to its functional diversity, historic importance and the serious damage it has sustained. The study presents a holistic view on the quarter: an urban analysis and the history and architecture of the most prominent buildings, including the present state. The publication is presented in English and Arabic.
