This is SYRBANISM
The process of achieving spatial justice relies fundamentally on
People’s role in space creation.
We don’t aim to formalise informal housing, instead
exploring solutions from its compositions

`
Syrbanism is a non-profit organisation based in Berlin, Germany. We started as a voluntary initiative by architects Nour Harastani and Edwar Hanna in 2017 to amplify the voices of Syrian people in rebuilding their country.
Syrbansim believes in simplifying the technical language of urban policies to become accessible to all non-expert citizens. We provide information and support for an informed decision-making for a more peaceful future for Syria.
