In a state of emergency with multiple transitions and disorientation disasters, wars and political conflicts have resulted in a humanitarian crisis and the displacement of more than 11 million people in the Syrian Arab Republic, transforming their homes, livelihoods, and lives individuals (UNESCO). The reality of these issues has seen the fields of architecture and preservation become a catalyst for representing these events, documenting and recording the importance of fear that, one day, such historic places may no longer exist. This thesis argues for a more subjective representation of these circumstances through abstracted narrative and allegorical architectural form by testing a reality-based displacement.
