This paper focuses on the reconstruction of Aleppo’s old city, and particularly, of its social functions. It argues that redevelopment must not view the Souq as merely an economic enterprise isolated from other social activity but also recognise the Souq’s critical role in Aleppo’s cultural and communal rehabilitation.
