The philosophy of identity in the architecture of shopping centers in Syria

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №1 (81) March, 2023

The article examines the spatial structure and adaptability of the architecture of the ancient oriental bazaars of Syria. The method of historical-genetic analysis was applied to the architecture of Aleppo’s historical market and helped identify stable elements in the system that have allowed the stability of the object to be maintained over several centuries. The spatial conjugation and functional contents, their interrelations, and alternation of functions have been revealed. The use of modern construction technologies in the construction of shopping and entertainment centers in combination with knowledge on the preservation of identity conveying signs will enable an innovative product to be created capable of sustainable development in today's dynamic world. This is especially true in the context of the crisis, instability and uncertainty plaguing the 21st century. A new interpretation of the identity and cultural continuity demonstrating the principles of sustainable development for centuries will help solve the problem of the need for shopping malls in Syria.
