Architecture of Dead Cities
Journey back in time to the ‘dead cities’ of the historical land of Syria, wonderfully remote, relatively unknown and unfortunately neglected, where the secrets of Syria’s history are revealed.
Perhaps one of the most vivid accounts of the country to date, this book shows that Syria is a land which suffered throughout history and, tragically, still does today. Learn about this unique country as it once was a stunning model of cross cultural civilizations manifesting through the relic of architecture; the first and eternal history book of humanity.
Against the background of the current war that ravages Syria today, Architecture of Dead Cities showcases the country’s past architectural glory: an in-depth look at 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.
