 "the work of a profound thinker"

—Sir Roger Scruton on The Battle for Home

 A voice of penetrating clarity and prophetic power, Al-Sabouni's memoir, The Battle for Home, showed how the seeds of the devastating civil war were sown by the choices of architects and city planners. Her new book, Building For Hope, answers that tragedy by articulating a vision for how we can regenerate a shared sense of humanity and a coherent sense of home. Though born of particular and painful experience, Al-Sabouni's insights are universal and offer consolation and hope amidst the civic alienation and aesthetic degradation facing so many of us today.

A conversation with Dr Stephen Blackwood followed by audience questions.

We encourage you to read Marwa Al-Sabouni's books:
