Video from Ralston College

"Ralston College presents a conversation between Stephen Blackwood and award-winning architect and author Marwa Al-Sabouni, followed by an audience Q & A. A voice of penetrating clarity and prophetic power, Al-Sabouni discusses the role of architecture in cultivating or undermining our social fabric, arguing that the seeds of the devastating Syria Civil War were sown by the choices of architects and city planners. Though born of particular and painful experience, Al-Sabouni's insights on the nature of human life and community are universal, and offer consolation and hope amidst the civic alienation and aesthetic degradation facing so many of us today. The conversation took place online on June 24th, 2021. Artists, Art, and Writings Mentioned in this Episode Khalid ibn al-Walid Mosque Saint Mary of the Holy Belt Cathedral Souk marketplaces Roger Scruton: The Aesthetics of Architecture Christopher Alexander" from video introduction
