Urbicide Mosul - Triggers for reconstruction MA theses 2019

Mosul, the ancient city of Niniveh, has been at the center stage of the war against Daesh. The reconquering of the city has led to a severe destruction of almost all the neighborhoods. The projects aim at rethinking the future reconstructed city as a sum of independent urban cells where bottom-up design tools can empower local population to intervene directly. The design shows the necessity to match high-tech technological systems with sensitivity towards the cultural and social dimensions.
