Restoring Life to Post-War Cities

Urban design solutions in conflict affected cities can work towards people-centred development approaches, enhancing a community’s sense of belonging, ownership and cohesion. This study aims to understand how culture-based urban solutions can be prioritised in conflicts cities. While investigating cities that have recovered after war, it focuses on the role communities play in reviving the soul of the historical city centre, image and memory.

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.
