The Walking Memorial

This thesis re-reads the lost identity of the Iraqi people of Basra, changed from the peaceful Babylon era to the ruins and fear of today. It portrays the rich layers of the city’s history as a memorial, a space where imaginary meets reality, using architecture to design a place for memorial in where citizens could reconnect to their city.

MORE is a part of Open Studio project run by the School of Architecture + Cities at the University of Westminster to make its design, research and practice-based work available online while it is happening.
