My Aleppo (previously Future Aleppo) by Mohammed Qutaish

My Aleppo (previously Future Aleppo) by Mohammed Qutaish

On view:
The Victoria and Albert Museum
May 12 – November 4, 2018
London, England

My name is Mohammed Qutaish. I am 14 years old. This is my city of Aleppo.

I began building my model after I experienced my city being destroyed by air strikes and missiles. My sorrow, caused by this destruction, has inspired me immensely.

Sometimes I feel very frightened. Sometimes I cannot think or work.

Optimism gives me the power and determination to finish the works I have started.

Every complex I design has a garden.

They destroy. We rebuild.
I am building the Syria of tomorrow.
When I grow up I hope to be an architect.
I hope that one day these paper buildings will become real buildings.

This closet, with Sara's underthings, linens, clothes, shoes, and objects all lined up with militaristic precision and loving care, represents the unending search, from the monumental to the mundane, for order, beauty, and meaning.
