Future Aleppo by Mohammed Qutaish

Future Aleppo by Mohammed Qutaish

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.
