Description

Text in Arabic. Journey back in time to the dead cities in the historical land of Syria, wonderfully remote, relatively unknown and unfortunately neglected, where the secrets of Syrias history are revealed. Perhaps one of the most vivid recounting of the country to date, Syria is a land which suffered throughout history and, remorsefully, still does today. Learn about this unique country before it was such, a stunning model of cross cultural civilisations manifesting through the relic of architecture; the first and eternal history book of humanity. Compounded by the current war that ravages Syria today, Architecture of Dead Cities, showcases the countrys past architectural glory: an in-depth look of more than 800 villages and sites, and its cultural identity, which reflects the diversity of its sources of inspiration and the development of its complex architectural character.
