Amongst the destruction of his beloved Aleppo (Syria), 13-year old Mohammed Kteish resolved that he would rebuild the city – reconstructing the fallen landmarks first as paper models and then in virtual reality.
Mohammed’s model of Aleppo will be on display at the University of Portsmouth, alongside the virtual reality installation – through which you can travel inside and experience the city of Aleppo as Mohammed remembers it.
