Alex Pearson founder of the Future Aleppo project is joining us at our Art Marquee at the Art at the Lake festival on the 30th June to talk about "Future Aleppo" a Virtual Reality experience based on the inspirational work of Mohammed Kteish.Having witnessed the destruction of his beloved home city, Mohammed resolved to preserve Aleppo's monuments and landmarks using whatever materials he could salvage amongst the debris. Before long, the aspirational architect had created a restored version of the city filled with the memories and dreams of inhabitant. Alex visited Aleppo and after meeting Mohammed decided that he had to continue to build his vision.
